Use the “PowerPmacFactoryReset Folder” in a USB stick to clear the HW watchdog. On power-on or reset, Power PMAC automatically checks any present USB memory sticks or SD memory cards for certain folder names. The existence of any of these folders at the top level forces the Power PMAC into a special mode (known as “recovery mode”) instead of the normal operational mode.


If this does not work this may be repairable with a re-image. Contact your local Omron repair center or distributor to start a repair.
