Testing the board? The only thing I can think of is connecting the serial port. There is some information in the thread 'I'm all alone?'

But you had your box running without USB device support, right? In that case the board is OK.

You can mount both ext2/3 partitions? In that case I think the kernel is damaged, somehow. (Partition 6). Do some math to see if it can be overwritten by the last dd action. And/or read it back, and compare it to the original image dump.

thanks for the images mtrok2, I will try those later.

in reply to Mijzelf:
I was unaware of that thread or the existence of a serial port on the edmini, will look into that.
I had the box running on USB as new. However, I have not been able to approach it via UTP. Light-indicators on the UTP port work by the way, but I'm not sure this indicates a working board.

First I will start messing with partition 6, since this seems to be the best lead at the moment

Cheers

I've started to recreate the drive with the files mtrok2 has provided (although I believe these are the same ones I was already using)
I just noticed one difference in my partitions and the ones you showed and mentioned, mtrok2. I do not have an unknown sdc5 partition.
Could this be the cause of my problem? If so, how can I solve this?

The unknown sdc5 is the Linux swap partition. I do not think it is the problem, but if you want you can try to write the swap image to it which will turn it black and unknown. Yeah the images I uploaded is the same as the one you were using, but I know this one is working. Your problem is either with sdc6, the mbr or the board, but I will exclude the MBR since you are able to boot from USB. You can try LacieHasser method http://forum.nas-central.org/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=361&start=15. I used it before and it will make your disk network work but without the usb function. At least if you try his method and you get it working than we will know that's the problem is not with the board.

@mtrok2:
I recreated the drive with your image files, but this was of no avail.

@mijzelf:
The md5sum of the image files and the partitions are ok

@mtrok2:
I do not really understand the laciehasser method. Could you explain what to do to implement this method?
