The 520 boots from itís internal flash and is pretty flexible regarding itís drive configuration. I donít remember everything Iíve tried with it off hand.

I can try it with one blank drive in mine sometime tomorrow if that will help.

Yes, you can install and operate on a single disk without any problems.
PM me for TFTP / Boot Images / Recovery files  LSRecovery.exe file.

Hi, I just tried it and with one disk inserted into the NAS it set itself up as raid 1 and has worked fine. Thanks for the advice everyone.
