Installed 916+ loader on my Western Digital WD Sentinal DX4000...The problem is, since the loader boots FROM the USB drive, I need to engineer something to hold in the "recovery" button on the unit. It's a headless unit that only boots to USB on reboot if recovery button is held in :D

you could probably engineer an n/o relay with timer circuit that you could jumper across the reset button, on power up (taken from say the hdd supply) the relay closes mimicing the button press, and the timer releases after 'x' seconds https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Velleman-MK111-Adjustable-Timer-and-Relay-Output-/131508771446?_trksid=p2385738.m4383.l4275.c10 another option could be https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B075XC76HV?tag=opr-mkt-opr-uk-21&ascsubtag=1ba00-01000-ubp00-def00-other-nomod-uk000-pcomp-feature-scomp-wm-4-wl-sce0&ref=bit_scomp_sav0 , relays for the reset and power buttons giving you a full remote boot option, albeit complicated

Lol! I definitely could. Easier to just keep it pressed in though :)
