Thread: System Disk Install on Octane

  1. System Disk Install on Octane

    Installing a clean Sys disk on an Octane Machine, only disk in sys
    during set up

    Power-Up ==> Maintenance Mode ==> Command Monitor ==> "?Password?"

    Do not recall any NVRAM passwd or other setting used, root passwd should
    not be applicable as /etc/passwd is absent, then what is the escape for
    this?
