I have a SG30 and the hard drive is bad so need a image or CD. The link you give for them http://www.mediafire.com/?aiev3pm81p56a wants $90 a year and I just need to download 1 file.
Is there any place else to download the rescue CD or a image?
I think I like the rescue CD because want to have a SSD in this can get like a 500GB SATA SSD for about $50 today. But need a SATA to IDE and I have that. Just need to install the OS on it now.

Found out can download one at a time. I did not know each file was in the folder and downloading the folder would cost $. I did download them and put them to a ISO and on a CD-R and can get the SG30 to go in one time turning on the LED light on the USB CD ROM. But I did not have this disk in it then. Never got it again to turn on the LED light of the USB drive. But I did get the LCD screen to show that it was booting from it but it was not and after a few minutes it rebooted to BIOS POST! I guess that just means no OS and only in the BIOS that can't see.
Have to hold down the LCD button to get it in this mode as you turn it on. But it seems like it's a hit or miss.
Started to download the Ubuntu image and it's a lot of parts and it stop at at 22 files I guess have to wait 24 hours to download the rest. Then I guess use another PC to install it and put the hard drive in the SG30.
The 2nd post says can remove the power supply to plug in a PS2 keyboard and I did. I press D on boot up and I can see the LED flash some on the USB CD-ROM drive but it don't stay going.
Do I have to press something else on the keyboard too?
Hi Raymond and welcome to the UTM Community!
That link contains the ISOs for a software version 8 - probably not what you want. If you have an SG appliance, you will want to choose an ssi (hardware) version from UTM Support Downloads. If you are having problems with the hard drive in your SG, do not open the case! Doing so will void the warranty. I would urge you to contact your reseller immediately.
Cheers - Bob

I got the SG30 from eBay said it did not work. The hard drive in it does not spin. Seems like it tries to spin but don't.
I have a old image on a CD-R named ""SG30_Build_us_3.1.0-74.tib" I put it on a WD BLUE 500GB 3D NAND SATA SSD with a SATA to IDE.
It just will not boot on the SG30. I don't have a recover CD and it will see a old USB CD ROM drive I have.
But wow I put the SG30 image on a SG20 and it booted from the SSD. I set it up with a IP.
Put it in another system to run Gparted on it. To make the last partition full size of the drive. I messed it up some how now says file system bad something like that.
All so I guess I have to run a "sensors-detect" on it in the SG20. It thinks the voltage is to high on one of the cores of the CPU.
Something a SG30 image works on the SG20 the LCD display even works.
But I love to get it to work on the SG30. I put that SSD wile it still worked in the SG20 on the SG30 and it just boots to BIOS POST! I guess have to wait till I get the RS232 for this in the mail and then maybe can set the BIOS to boot from the SSD drive.
Any one know the right way to make it the full size of the drive?
The link to down load the files for Linux after you down load about 25 files or so, it locks you out at lest for 24 hours so maybe a week or month or year. Can some one else download the rest for me and put them on like your google drive or something. I got to SG30-Ubuntu-Server-910.img.part21.rar so need 22 on. Elase you have to pay like $100 a year.
You can make a free server too just look up "google cloud" and can ssh to it to upload download from there. It take a google account and a credit card but they give you $300 to start with and if it don't get a lot of traffic it only cost like $0.17 a month. You are limit a year I guess.
I made a Google cloud server and put it at 500GB and it took it I am not sure what it's limit is.
