While my suspicions are bad hard drive, I am looking for recovery suggestions and I am surprised unit would fail this soon.
Bought a used Premier, unit is less than 18months old based on hard drive manufacture date.
After a recent power outage, unit is stuck in a reboot loop, and will not respond to Kickstart codes of any kind. Other forums advise replace drive.
I am hoping the brighter minds of this forum can offer suggestions for reviving a drive which is only 18months old. I've already tried the typical PC hard drive failure steps. Disconnect, pat gently, pat a little harder. Considering a deep freeze which has been known to break a hard drive spindle free.
Any other suggestions....and is hard drive failure less than two years part of the MTBF ...
Has anyone with early hard drive failure been able to get WesternDigital to provide a replacement drive ? Most have a three year warranty.
