New to mikrotik routers having only just recently acquired a pre-owned hap ac2.
Attempted to netinstall the latest version of routeros (7.12) using debian 12 using the -r option, as I wanted to ensure that I was starting afresh with its configuration. However, that appeared to fail as it hung with what I assume was some sort of error - sendFile.
Subsequently attempted to install 6.49.10. This appears to have been successful, in that the process gets to 'Sent reboot command' then exits. However, it appears the unit is now stuck in etherboot. Whenever I power the unit on I am unable to make any connection to it using winbox.exe (running under wine), no details of the router appears in 'neighbors' no matter which ethernet interface I plug into. Wireshark shows no activity on ether2-5, whereas on ether1 the only packets captured are bootp. Furthermore if I make further attempts to run netinstall-cli, it finds the router straight away without having to hold the reset button down. This suggests to me, as I've mentioned previously that the unit is stuck in etherboot.
Any suggestions on how to recover the unit?
