Hi UrbanVoyeur,

Thanks a lot for your help. It was really useful.

I didn't see your reply until very late that night, and didn't come back to say that it worked. Your steps for the whole process where far better than anything I found googling around the hours before I came back here.

Accurate and fast. Congrats.

Cheers,
esclapes

I'm having trouble putting files onto my plug. I'm on a Mac and I tried to mount it as a local drive through Finder -> Connect to Server. I logged in and got this file structure (last image - attachments seem to be reversed ...). I tried transferring a 200mb file (my connected HDD is 1tb ext3) but it said I ran out of space - this implies to me that I was connecting to the Plug and not the HDD (even though the plug should have been booted up off the HDD ... ).

I've tried to boot from my SATA 2 disk. If I go to my plug's homepage, I see this (image 2).

If I go to the TonidoPlug settings menu, I see this (first image).

If I go to TonidoShell and run -fdisk L I see this text:
[root@TonidoPlug2 /]#fdisk -l

Disk /dev/sda: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 1 121602 976762583+ ee GPT



So - my setup appears to not work. I can't set /dev/sda as my User Account Directory - a yellow box appears with no text. Help fixing this is appreciated.


Edit: it *seems* to have been fixed by going in with SSH, and doing -fdisk a /dev/sda1. For whatever reason it decided not to keep the drive as a bootable drive. I am now able to map across to my plug (although it goes incredibly slowly, for some reason, maybe because of the heat the plug is kicking out). Now I've gone back in and checked again the Boot flag has been deleted. It's rather confusing but it seems to be working at least to some degree now.
