Hello and thank you for visiting. I write stuff, quite often randomly and sometimes technical stuff too. I’m not a microsoftee, just so happens the bulk of my work relates to products they create. I dabble in Linux and Solaris a bit, as well as virtualisation across most vendors including good old Citrix. Anyway, enjoy cos I’m off to smoke me a kipper.

You can contact me directly at me at zulfikar.co.uk

Oh, by the way NONE of these comments represent any of the companies I work for/have worked for in the past. Any advice, especially the trading stuff, is NOT be taken as correct, valid and authentic. Lots of other disclaimers to add but then this would never end!

While you’re here IF you like cooking wholesome healthy stuff (and if you’re a member of Slimming World) check out my wife’s blog here

      Hi Salaam,
      We have a Fujitsu celvin QR 802 NAS in our IT infrastructure. Recently we ungraded to latest firmware. Unfortunately we are unable to boot the NAS device after we upgraded it to the latest firmware.It keeps on restarting every now and then. I have removed the four hard disks from NAS device and boot the NAS from the live CD.Finally copied the firmware image into USB storage.However, this is not helping me to resolve the issue and the NAS keeps prompting EFI shell instead of normal booting.Can you please help me to resolve this issue??

        Hi, you need to either raise a support ticket with Fujitsu OR ask on the QNAP forum for advice. The Celvin QR802 is just a rebranded QNAP, in this case I believe you have the QNAP TS-431U. Good luck.
