    Hi all,

    Hoping someone can lead me down the right path.

    I have a lifetime Series 2 540040 with a dead hard drive. I have restored the image provided by this forum to a working 80 GB hard drive using WinMFS.

    The drive will boot right into guided setup and gives me no information for any zip code.

    After trying a few zip codes and rebooting the drive goes to Installing a Service Update. This will take a few minutes. After this the box gets stuck in a reboot loop for Welcome Powering Up.

    I have repeated this procedure twice with the same result each time. The image restores with 9.3.2b and I assume after trying to get the zip code information it gets the 9.3.2c update but the install fails for some reason and gets stuck in the loop.

    I would love to hear any thoughts about this strange issue.

    Where were you able to find an image? I have been searching for a 540040 image for 3 days and cannot find one.

    I just received an image for my series 2 540040 and am having the exact same issue.
    Were you able to solve it and if so, how?
