I have a LaCie 5bigv1 and I installed the fvdw-sl-console-6-16-1-9feb2016-32bits firmware. After the 'reboot -f' command the unit restarts, but the blue drive LED continues to flash (guessing it's not able to boot the firmware on the disk). The fvdw-assistant does not find the NAS after doing scans.
I can post in detail any requested logs or info. The firmware installation log says that it was successful with no errors that I see, and the fvdw installation process goes very well. In the fvdw-console if I run the 'U-Boot' console instead, I get the Marvell prompt, printenv outputs a lot of info. If I run 'ide reset' it can't find any drives:
Marvell>> ide reset
Marvell Serial ATA Adapter
Found adapter at bus 1, device 7 ... Scanning channels
I don't know if this is because I'm using netconsole (instead of the serial connection) of if there were some other problems with the installation. I can post logs.
I initally wanted to use brand new 3TB seagate drives (MBR making the >2TB choice in the firmware setup), but I've also tried the original 1.5TB drives, at first only a single drive in the rightmost slot (from the back), but since other drives in other slots. All end up the same, after reboot -f, continually flashing blue disk LED, and U-Boot 'ide reset' always listing no drives or partitions.
Trying to avoid taking it apart to connect to the serial console port.
