Hedmo, I'd say the first thing to determine is how they install software on it. Are there instructions about upgrades or patches? It may be that you have to do it over a network or use a bootable USB. What is the hadware under the hood?

Well the mention of Linux is promising. What does your manual say about upgrades? What does this thing have for other access. I'm guessing from this alone you'll need a bootable USB to install.

to reinstall the home server i had to put it in a recovery mode on the server and connect it to a lan port on a pc (ms-windows) and run the install cd.after 1 and 1/2h it was reinstalled.thats all. maybe there is a usb-vga cable to get picture or something like that :roll:

Interesting. I guess you'll need to check what the install CD is doing. It may just be copying a bootable image into a special location in which case you could try the same. Can you get any sense of what is on the CD?
