Here is information about the serial port of the 2Big2. I expect the 2Big to be equal, as the EdminiV2, Networkspace and Networkspace2 have the same pinning.

i am going to start all over again, i am going to completely null out the HDD, just incase.
While it won't hurt, I don't think it will help you in this step. The bootprocess is (more or less):
1 Powerup.
2 CPU jumps to some address and executes code which is there. That code is the bootloader.
3 The bootloader does some initialisation.
4 The bootloader loads the kernel, somehow, and checks it's checksum.
5 The bootloader passes execution to the kernel.
6 The kernel initializes.
7 The kernel tries to find it's rootfs, and mount it.
8 The kernel executes /init on the rootfs.
9 /init runs some scripts to assemble the raidarray.
10 rootfs is exchange by a new one on some raidarray
11 daemons are started

When something is wrong with the disks, you can expect it to go wrong at 4, 7, 9 or 11. But in your case it (seems to) stalls at 6.

Sorry to reply to such an old thread...
But I've got exactly the same problem as you allenpan!

Did you manage to get yours booting again?

I found my old LACIE 2big network 2 which failed on me years ago.
Hoping I'm able to get it booting up again.

I prepared two disks to put in, and when I try to get it booting up it gets stuck at "done, booting the kernel."

So I was hoping you've found the problem.
Or maybe you put it aside like I did years ago.

Anyway, thought it would be fun to get it working again :)

If you got any info on it. I hope you're willing to share it with me ;)

Best regards,
