bios 2.1.364

The 15 gb drive in this unit was beginning to make nasty clicking sounds and having severely delayed reads while backing up data. Want to upgrade to a 500GB drive. Upgraded to 3.4.805 without an issue.
Are you still stuck on this? I just barely imaged my 10GB Snap 1000 as part of a (successful) upgrade to 80GB.

How do you do this?

(I've got the 4.0860 .sup file.)

Oh wow...it's been a while. I directly supported the Snap's for a little more than a year before we spun them off again and Adaptec picked them up.

If I remember correctly, using a hex editor on the SUP file, you can determine where the bin's separate. Create external HEX files for the individual units of the time (called MOAIxxx.hex, where xxx was a code for a particular model of Snap). You then put the Snap into flash mode (Also known as FLUP mode; see KB here at ProCooling) and used snapup32 to ram the OS down the little buggers throat via Ethernet.

Common MOAI's were "MOAI200.hex" for the 4100(internally known as the 705) and MOAI110.hex for the 1000's, and MOAI20x.hex for the 1100. I believe the 12000 used the MOAI300.hex. Kind of tough to remember, as this was 8-9 years ago.

Sorry if I'm off on a couple of points here, but at least you get an idea that it is doable. I wrote up a little note once on updating a 3.4.805 HDD in an 1100 to see beyond the 136-ish limit of the 1000, but the real kicker was getting the extremely short lived 3.4.805 OS itself. Internally, we were excited to pull out our little drives and dig up a 160gb drive and get it to work at it's full capacity. It required a debug prompt and "co dev format 10000 /reinit".

I'll admit, these were fun little systems to mess with, and the 1100 was much faster than the 1000, as it had an Intel processor.

...sorry for rambling.
