Hi - I’ve got a mucked up box - my fault, I’m trying to install our (Internet Archive) server on it.
I’ve also got a document “Rachel Plus Field Update Oct 4th, 2018 (rev 1.01)” with a pointer to an image for rebooting a system that is completely “bricked” (will not boot).
Ideally I’m looking for a way to do a softer recovery, for example from the net, or from an image on an external disk, because this hard recovery loses all the content which then has to be restored from the net.
@Steve, @edresor thinks you are working on better diagnostics and I wonder if this would be something to add to that. Something that could restore the OS from a bootable Rachel without trashing the content ? I’m happy to be a guinea pig.
Note - I’m leaving to Australia tomorrow, and will have significantly worse, though not terrible, internet after that point so a quick link to anything I should download while I’m still in the US on super-fast internet would be useful even if there is no time to actually work through it before Thanksgiving.
