1.5TB 6x
netgear model: RNDP6000... I'm not sure how to explain which readynas it is but we using it for storage purposes

tried the following: To access the boot menu:
1. Power off your unit.
2. Using a straightened paper clip, press and hold the Reset button.
3. Press the Power button to power on the unit.
4. Continue to press the Reset button until the status display screen shows an boot menu
message.
5. Press the Backup button to scroll through the boot mode options.
6. Press and release Reset button to confirm your boot menu selection

on the boot manu.... selected this option:
OS Re-install. Reinstalls the firmware from the internal flash to the disks. Use the OS reinstall
boot mode when the system crashes and corrupts some configuration files. OS reinstall boot
mode also resets some settings on your unit, such as Internet protocol settings and the
administrator password, to defaults

tried flexible raid option, no avail... the moment it tries to configure raid 6, error corrupt root appears. on the nas device: ERR: Patitionin’
                                                            g failed!
so I've  decided to do a complete erase... still busy

When you get an error corrupt root ,it's usually a bad disk or disk 1 is in the wrong slot.

Did you move disk 1?

If I suspect a bad drive,I usually pull it and run a standalone on a different system.
