    First thing for me would be to open the box and check wether the flash module is inserted correctly. After that I would try to flash the unit.

    Wow, this is a really old unit – I mean really old. These old Netier boxes (Wyse purchased his company and re-branded them) needed DOC tools to flash and I’m not even sure of the process.

    I have DOC tools lying around, I will post them – good luck trying to flash it! The disk on chip were not that reliable so if its dead you are in trouble, good news is its there is an IDE port if you do not have the CDROM and regular flash works just fine to boot from this port. (its an AMD K6 motherboard)

    If you search these forums there are a few old posts on these boxes, I did not know any still existed!

    Cheers,

    Hi,

    You can buy converters from any electronics store or use flash vrom a V class as these are 2.5 inch IDE flash!

    Here are some old tools I found, if you build an old Rapport 4.4 server you can try and flash the device with a factory image:

    I am assuming these can be downloaded from the retired devices section of the wyse site:

    http://www.wyse.com/serviceandsupport/support/downloads.asp

    If you can’t let me know as i may have the old product manuals and firmware – actully I ink I h have the factory flashing tools too!

    Cheers,
    -TT

    When you look at the board (like you took the pic above) you will find the power on the bottom right to the RAM slots.
