How do I access the boot menu on my ReadyNAS 422, 424, or 524X?

1. Turn your system off and press and hold the reset button. The reset button can be a little hard to reach, so we advise using a straightened paper clip or any other sharp object.

2. While holding the reset button, press the power button. Continue to press the reset button until a boot menu message appears on your display screen.

3. Using the up and down buttons on the front panel, scroll through the boot mode options.

4. When the status display screen shows the boot mode you need, press the OK button on the front panel. You have now successfully accessed the boot menu on your ReadyNAS storage system!
