Re: Adding hard drive

They have to be properly mounted in the OS for Amahi to be able to use them.

Seeing them and being able to use them is two separate things.

Recommend you follow the Adding a second hard drive to your HDA guidance.

Re: Amahi Sync problem

Oh no. Sorry to hear it didn't go well.

As for recovering your files, you likely need an app to read the Linux file structure.

There are several out there, to include portable versions for Windows.

Will mark this thread as closed.

Good luck and will be here if you need additional help.

Re: Amahi Sync problem

Most BIOS provide options to disable the port.

Not sure what else to suggest.

Re: Cannot open access to console. The root account is locked.

You can add any size drive. They don’t have to match.

Check the wiki for guidance.

BTW you’ll need to tell Greyhole the drive was removed.

Should be plenty of help in the wiki.

Re: Platform apps

Where do you see that text?

Typically doesn’t apply to most users I’d think. Not many use a proxy.

Re: Cannot open access to console. The root account is locked.

Check drive connections.

Then add them back one at a time until you find the bad one.

If you have an idea which one is bad, you could add all but that one.

Re: Cannot open access to console. The root account is locked.

Ok. So now that you have the root password reset, recommend you log in using emergency mode.

Then edit /etc/fstab and comment out your extra drives. Reboot and see if that fixes the issue.

Re: Cannot open access to console. The root account is locked.

Yes you can reinstall using that guide. As long as the drives are separate from the OS drive, you should be fine. I would recommend before taking such drastic measures that you try to figure out the underlying issue. There is plenty of guidance on the internet for finding problems in emergency mode ...

Re: Amahi Sync problem

The network card is likely the issue.

Is the second one disabled in the BIOS? Can one be removed from the system?

Doesn’t seem so as the OS indicates two network cards. Only one can be active in the OS.

Re: Cannot open access to console. The root account is locked.

The emergency mode indicates a drive is missing.

Did you move or remove any drives?
