Default Re: Anyone have a Snap 520? Upgraded it?

With v5 OS you do not need to go through that.

Remove all HD's except #1
Boot snap
install new HD in to slot 2
wait for OS to be copied over. the drive activity lights will tell you if it reconizes the drives and copies the OS over.
Shut down and move drive 2 to 1 position.
Boot with new drive in 1,
then install the remaining HD's.

Since this will break the array, you need to backup any data and delete the raid array.
1 Snap 4500 - 1.0T (4 x 250gig WD2500SB RE), Raid5,
1 Snap 4500 - 1.6T (4 x 400gig Seagates), Raid5,
1 Snap 4200 - 4.0T (4 x 2gig Seagates), Raid5, Using SATA converts from Andy
