The computer inside of Baxter does not respond. I have tried to reboot it. Now I completely lost my access to robot. Can anyone help on this problem. Is there a way to run the robot with another ROS hard drive?

You may not like this answer but...

If you take off the plastics, its just a mini PC in there. Remove it and replace it with whatever machine you would like to use, or reimage it.

I was frustrated in college to no end with Baxter. They don't give you sudo access. Setting up on the internet is such a pain. They basically don't want you to use the robot as far as I could tell. Just replace the whole machine or reimage it, you'll save yourself a bunch of time.
