    I-Series storage board & boot problem.

    Has anyone managed to format the storage board so that the device will boot with it.

    What's the problem? Stuck at 25%/50% booting?

    Yes.Always replaced with a new storage board. It would be cheaper if it could be formatted.

    Agree, Don't know solution yet other than replacement of Storage board. I hear some claimed that recovery FW helps, not in our cases.

    There is a way to format these storage boards. You need a code.

    Once tried. New version. Does not work.

    Of course, the diagnostic tool shows the defective part. But it doesn't fix anything.

    I have successfully formatted 2. One on 250i and 2nd on 550i. The smaller A4 colour doesn't want to know no matter what I did. I got a usb M2 adaptor and used disk management. Deleted all partitions that it let me, made them active and didn't assign any drive letters. Another way to use cmd to format it and make only one active partition but I yet to try it that way. Can't remember if I plugged a f/w on 1st boot up or not. Set to mem storage and input s.n and you loose all counters/ eu/us settings
