RB 951-2n bricked/unusable after RC6 update

i had a RB 951-2n running ros 6.0rc5 and last night upgraded it to RC6. (all of this to address the nonstop wireless issues with this very buggy RB series).

the led lights come on, as well as the Ethernet port indicator if i plug in a Ethernet cable.

however i cant access or see the RB in anyway after this update, and holding the reset button does not seem to do anything.

any ideas on how to get this RB working again? this has turned into a 300$ waste as none of my 6x RB 951-2n can be put into real world as we cant get any stability out of them and have been trying for over 2 months now (ROS updates, firmware updates, nothing helps).

tks

Sounds like you may need to netinstall.

Were you ever able to get this working? I just had a similar problem after I upgraded from 5.20 to 6.0rc6. The install itself went fine, but when i tried to use partitions, I ended up just like you have.

I was hoping that the wireless stability was straightened out as well. Sigh....
