  • Hi Guys
    thanks for your replies but i have sorted it out, the primary hard drive had failed so i have just bought anither one and i am installing it now.
    By the way it is a Scaleo Home Server, which i think i regret buying now i would prefer one that if needed i can attach a monitor and mouse.

    Regards

  • Hi James,
    what kind of home server do you have - an OEM device or a self built?
    Did you already try a reboot? (Power off and on again after waiting a few seconds.)

  • If you have an OEM server that you've placed in recovery mode, it probably shows up on your network as "minint-<something>". If so, try rebooting the server: hold the power button down until it shuts down, then power it back up.
