Have you tried reflashing it with the G7L9 firmware?

You should be able to reflash it with a cvt file if worst comes to worst.

At least your drive isn’t dead and unrecoverable, so consider yourself lucky; it’s just running in safe mode. Try the flash again, and upon completion of the flash, things should be okay.

However, it might be a good idea to find out why the flash failed in the first place so that it doesn’t happen again. To be safe, it might be a good idea to try the flash in DOS mode with a CVT flasher because flashing in DOS is generally much safer than flashing in Windows…

BTW, please do not cross-post… I’ve deleted your thread in the Firmware Forum.
