How can the Nova II be completely reset?

To restore the operating system of a Nova II, hold down part edit
button 6 while you turn the synthesiser on. The display will show
"reload O/S from ROM to flash?". Push the page up button to accept this
prompt. The reload should take around 5 seconds.
Once the reload is complete you can restore the factory settings. To do
this find the local control & memory protect page in the global
menu. Ensure that local control is turned on and memory protect is
turned off. Press the page up button to advance to the restore from ROM
page of the global menu. Use the fast data controls to select "total
data" as the option to be restored.
Push the write button twice to initiate the reload. This reload takes
around 15 seconds. Once the reload has taken place, the memory (not the
buffers) will have been initialised. Turn the Nova II off and back on
again or advance to a new Program / Performance to clear the buffers.
The items that are restored are: Program banks A-D, Performance banks
A-B, Drum Banks a-d (Supernova II only), all arp patterns and the
global menu data. Program banks E-H.
