Converting Designjet T770 HDD to just T770

HP Recommended
Designjet T770 HDD

Hi fellow members,


I suspect my formatter card/hard drive is failing in my Designjet T770 HDD even though the diagnostics run well on the formatter. In order to debug it, I have some questions:

a. Is it possible to set it up so that it does not use HDD?

b. Is it possible to set it up so it does not use the formatter (similar to running a designjet 800 w/o formatter).


Any help is appreciated !

a. Nope, not possible (like PC, want boot without HDD)

b. On DJ 800 it's not formatter, its HP-GL card. You cannot compare DJ 800 and T770 technological base is totaly different.


Anyway, fi you suspect on HDD you can perform Filesystem check and Hard Disk Recovery (which is like you format working partition and reinstall firmware from scrach on it using recovery image stored on another partition of HDD)
