Hi, I've come across the bricked WD MyBook WD20000H2NC and would like to install a new operating system on it, because currently it doesn't boot.
As far as I understand it, I need to install the OS on one of the hard drives that are already in the WD MyBook (they are currently empty). The problem is that the system doesn't boot (naturally, since the disks are not present), but if I attach a bootable USB into it, it doesn't boot from it, why not?
The other option would be getting the disk out of the MyBook, putting it into the laptop, installing the OS on it and then put it into the MyBook again and boot from there.
Are my assumptions correct?
Is there an iso image that I can download from the internet with the default WD installation, which I can just mount and copy onto the disk directly? This way I don't actually have to install the OS, because it's already installed, all I have to do is copy the data over to the right hard drive? I also don't need any recovery of data, since the disks are empty and don't contain any data.
