I've had no luck getting any Kickstart codes to work.
If I just let it boot the amber light flickers and goes out. I do not get alternating green and amber.
If I press the pause button when the amber light flickers I get a solid amber light. If I enter a code at this point (I've tried 52, 54, and 57) the green and amber alternate for a few seconds, then it continues to the "soon" screen, then the green screen, then it reboots.
I am not seeing the red or blue lights at all during this process (until it reboots).
Am I doing something wrong?
I'll probably just send it in for replacement or repair, since it's under warranty, and I haven't put a 2TB drive in it yet, but I'd like to at least test the hard drive first.
If it's going from the welcome screen (on the motherboard) to the few more minutes screen (on the hard drive), then it's talking to the hard drive.
Try KS 58, just for giggles.
The point at which to press pause happens at about 60 seconds after applying power on S1s, 2s, and 3s, so probably the same for S4s.
What does the green screen say when it pops up?
