No hard disk

Product Name: Xerox WorkCentre 5735
Operating System: Linux

Hello,

We bought a second hand Xerox WorkCentre without a hard disk. What steps do we need to take to make the WorkCentre work?

Thank you in advance.

Re: No hard disk

Install an HDD (160GB  is standard, but not necessary) and Altboot it to load the system to the drive

Re: No hard disk

Thank you for your reply. I tried the following but the workcentre is doing nothing with the USB:

- I installed an 80GB hdd formatted as FAT32

- I formatted an 8GB USB as FAT32 and put the DLM-file on it

- Inserted the USB in the workcentre

- Connected the power cord and pressed the power button

The green xerox screen comes on and the USB LED is flashing sometimes, but most of the time it's idle. De xerox display flashes completely red and green from time to time.

Did I do something wrong? Thank you in advance.

Hi,

You must put the .DLM file into AltBoot folder on the USB thum drive.

Re: No hard disk

I didn't mention it, but I did put it in a folder named 'Altboot'

Re: No hard disk

I tried, but still the same result. 

Isn't it possible to put the DLM file directly on the hdd?

Re: No hard disk

No, you must perform the AltBoot method. Otherwise you will need a tech with PWS.

Be sure to be like this AltBoot with just A and B letters in upper case.

Re: No hard disk

It's been a while, but I finally managed to perform a 'kind of' succesfull AltBoot. The homescreen of xerox was visible and I could tap some choices. But than the problems came: the screen froze, the printer didn't respond to any of the buttons so we had to pull the powerplug.

When we tried to reboot the same green screen came on as before the AltBoot. How is this possible?
