|You just got your ix2-200 from eBay and there are no disks inside the NAS. Or you have a brand new ix2-200 -yet you could not afford Cloud Edition. No problem. With just a USB stick and a SATA adapter or desktop PC, you will easily upgrade your ix2-200 to ix2-200 Cloud Edition.|
Not only your ix2-200 will have a brand new interface and Cloud options, but also will become Mac OS X Lion compatible!
What do we need?
Preparing Hard Drives
Preparing hard drives is the first step because you have to wipe all the data inside the hard drives and make them just like brand new. We used 2 x Seagate 2 TB 5900 RPM Drives.
Preparing USB Flash Drive
The Upgrade [Update: You have to do this process twice! We had to!]
In this process, ix2-200 will crate a Temp folder inside the USB stick and extract the contents of ix2-boot.tgz into that folder. When all files are extracted, ix2-200 will copy those files into the hard drive and those files will be your Cloud Edition OS.
After about 5 minutes when this process is done, ix2-200 will shut itself down. Remove the USB Flash Drive, plug in the network cable and press the power button in front of the device. Again after about 5 minutes, ix2-200 will preapere the OS for the first time and you will be able to reach it via web interface.
If you can't reach the device's web interface, wait for 10 minutes. After that, plug out the power cord. Now put the USB stick back into your PC and go into emctools\ix2-200d_images folder. You will see a Temp folder there. Delete it and then apply The Upgrade process again. This time, device will properly reconstruct the OS.
If you want RAID 1, you will have to wait for RAID reconstruction to finish which will tkae more than 5 hours with 2 x 2TB disks installed.
But if you want RAID 0, you can cancel the resconstruction process by simply selecting RAID 0 and then applying that from the menu.
This is it, now you have a fully functional ix2-200 Cloud Edition.

**A different USB Stick may be required in some cases. Looks like USB sticks are creating a lot of trouble. Try with another one if process fail as in this case, the 3rd USB stick worked...
