RE: [LinkStation_General] LS Live 500GB - Hard disk formatting and contents
It used to be the fact that the LS if there was no contents in the drive
managed to get itself an IP address from a DHCP server, or a default IP
address - which should be in the archives as I can't remember it now.
This happened to me with the LS120, which I had to replace the disk in,
and the firmware installer worked on it once it had the IP address.

Subject: [LinkStation_General] LS Live 500GB - Hard disk formatting and
A recent firmware upgrade "bricked" my new hardware LSLive. I was
able to recover the contents of the file storage are using a plug-in
for Windows. However, as the boot partitions did not contain viable
files, I followed instructions to replace the hard drive. I deleted all
partitions to make the drive appear "new". As I soon found out, the new
hardware LSLive only flashes the bootloader and everything else is on
the hard disk... Does anyone have a partition structure and backups for
a clean install on an LSLive, new hardware? Please advise.
