LinkStation LS-X (LS-X1.0TL) OS Install
« on: December 11, 2018, 01:08:14 pm »
Hello All:

Can someone provide me with some information for a LinkStation LS-X (LS-X1.0TL). The Hard-drive on it got damaged and I want to add a new drive.  I chat with one of the Buffalo support and they recommended that I need to perform a TFTP Boot, find the image and I was able to find it in this forum.

I am hoping someone can get back to me with this information. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

You should be able to load the firmware on a new drive by

1. Extracting the needed boot files from the firmware updater:

2. Boot into EM mode either via TFTP or directly loading the files onto the new drive:

3. Install the firmware using the firmware updater in Debug mode:
