...here's what you need:

I managed to create an clean image with LaCix Linux version 2.2.10.1 from scratch you can dd to your first drive of (almost) any size.
+ Any(!) number of additional drives (0 to 4) only need to be unformatted (no partition table at all).
+ No need to copy anything on those drives.
+ All necessary stuff will be copied at first boot from your first drive (slot 1, /dev/sda).
+ Autoadjusting(!) user space to disks maximum.
+ Full version - no updates applied at all (till now).

There is a size limit of 2 TB because of its msdos partition table.
Bigger drives need a GUID partition table and a fixed preinstalled user space (/dev/sdx2).
(INITRAMFS: uboot without gpt capacities)
So theres no image for disks with more than 2TB yet...

:mrgreen:
Hope this helps!

This is what you get at first boot with one imaged and four fresh 1 TB drives:

I am new to this so please be patient with me. Do i just copy and paste the image file to the disk then insert the disc into to slot 1?Do the other 4 drives need to be in there for this to work?

Use 'dd' to transfer the image to disk:
Code:
dd if=/path/to/image of=/dev/targetdisk bs=1M

Blocksize (bs) set to one megabyte reduces time needed.
(In dependance of your OS, you might need to set bs=1m)

Hello blsfsg,

Thank you for your post!

I have managed to transfer the image via dd to first drive (2TB), I left 4 other 2TB drives blank (no partions), and now I am stuck.

I am a Mac user and I have no idea, how on earth boot with one imaged and 4 fresh 2TB drives, so that LaCie can be accessible via Dashboard etc.
or simply what should I do next?

Please help.

Hi antracen!

Did you manage to dd the image without any errors?
Where exactly are you or your 5big2 are stuck?
What does the front light show?

btw: the remaining four drives must not contain any partition info!
If you're not sure, try zeroing the first megabytes of each drive (mac: diskutil zerodisk diskX)
Really new drives don't need to be treated that way, just leave them as they are...

Quote:
...what should I do next?
Insert the the freshly imaged HD to the first slot (left, looking onto the back side)
and the remainig drives into the empty slots, power your NAS and wait about one or two days for finish syncing.
You should see the front light blinking blue and all drive LEDs on the back blinking quite fast for the next hours.

You can access your NAS while its still syncing. The easiest way is to download and install "LaCie Network Assistant".
Your NAS should then be listed under the LNA menu bar icon on the right.
Depending on your network config, your NAS gets an IP address from your local dhcp.

hope this helps a bit
:mrgreen:

Thank you so much, blsfsg.

So here what I did:

I transferred the image to 1st disk using dd command via Terminal on my Mac, with no problem. I was watching the progress while it being transferred. When transfer completed, Mac wanted to mount the drive, but wasn't recognised as Mac drive, so I opened the Disk Utility and the drive was showing a few partitions on it, first one was Linux swap, and 4 or 5 with no names and rather different, and small sized partitions.

Then, because the remaining 4 drives had some info on:
I connected them to my Mac, used Disk Utility to make Free Space. However this might be the problem, as Disk Utility creates 1 partition, which is Free Space one, so I assume this is where problem is?

Then I put the 4 drives (marked as free space) in the 4 slots, then turned the unit on and it initialises itself and drives, then after about 3-5 mins the LaCie has solid blue lights: front and 5 at the back, where hard drives are. That's it. I cannot hear anything being done to hard drives, normally you can hear when something is being written to them or they are in use. I can only hear them being powered on + fan running.

I left it like this (solid blue light) for more than 2 days and nothing changed. LaCie Network Assistant doesn't detect the NAS on the network, which should assign an IP via DHCP. I am also unable to access Dashboard (web interface).

Then I decided to power off the unit and used the on/off switch. When I did it (switched to off position), the unit stayed switched on. I waited half a day for it to switch itself off, but nothing happened, so I unplugged the power cable from the back.

Then I thought, I will try to factory reset it using the following instructions:
1. Make sure the product is turned OFF.
2. Press and hold down the front button. Without releasing the front button, turn the product on by pressing the power switch on the rear of the product.
3. Keep the front button pressed until the front LED becomes solid red, then release it. (The LED should become solid red about 10 seconds after you turn on the product.)
4. The front LED will blink blue. When it becomes static blue, press the front button once within 5 seconds to confirm reset.
5. If any of the steps are omitted, the product will boot normally without resetting.

Then I can see that front light is blinking blue and the 5 lights at the back of the unit are static blue.

I am not sure, whether blinking blue means, the Unit is synchronising and I shall wait until blinking blue light becomes static blue and I will be then able to access it via LaCie Network Assistant / Web interface. So I left it like this for another 2 days and the unit is still blinking blue (front light).

I believe, I should have wiped the 4 drives or at least start writing zeros to them, so that all partition information is lost.
What do you reckon I should do?

Plus, how to boot the 1st drive imaged so that LaCie "understands" it?
How do I watch any progress made, if there is any?
Finally, I read somewhere, while the unit is being synchronised, I still should be able to access it via its web interface (dashboard) or LaCie Network Assistant.

Thank you so much for all the work and for sharing all the infos, blsfsg!

I am afraid to be in the same situation of antracen - I have followed (at least I think!) your instructions, i.e. :

1. dd the .img file to disk 1 (done with ubuntu live cd);
2. formatted and then started zeroing the first mb of disk 2, 3, 4 and 5 (on mac osx with diskutil zerodisk diskX), so that all the disks appear completely empty (I believe that in this way they had no partition table);
3. put all the disks in their position;
4. powered on the nas.

Since then the nas is blinking the blue front light, while the back lights of the disks are solid blue, without giving any sign of hd activity. It has been like that for the past 12 hours and it is unrecognised both by the router as well as by my computer.
Is it normal? Do I have to wait 2 or more days, as antracen posted?

I have a 5big v.2 equipped with 5 x 1 TB drives.

Thank you in advance for everybody's help and guidance - it'll be greatly appreciated!


-------- EDIT 11 feb 2016 ----------------------------------

I finally managed to fix the nas with blsfg's image!

I don't know if that can help anyone, but here is what I did:

- dd the .img to the first hd (the one on the left of the lacie) with terminal;
- started writing zeros on the other 4 hdds with terminal (from my experience it is not important to complete the process, since it is important that the hdds are not formatted in any way);
- took the first disk (the one where I first dd'ed the image) and examined it with gparted and linux terminal (I have burned an Ubuntu live cd which has all these tools included) - I noticed that there was a huge partition that was not formatted ( 935 GB over a 1TB disk) and several small partitions;
- I formatted that big partition with terminal on linux/ubuntu live cd as per fvdw's instructions creating only the last big partition:


gdisk /dev/sda

Command (? for help): n

2
(accept the default first sector by pressing enter)
(accept the default last sector by pressing enter)
(press enter)


Then printed the partition table to see if it is ok:

Command (? for help): p

And you should get a partition table with 7 different partitions (one very big - in my case ~935GB and the other varying from 8/16mb to ~800mb).

If it is ok, then type
w

and answer Y to proceed writing the new partitions.

- Then insert all the disks in the nas (the first one with the image on the left)
- Power on the unit and voilà!


Very important: do not update the firmware! I have tried to do it and the unit did not reboot - I had to start over the whole process once more.

Hope this can help someone!

All the best

Hello people,

This is my first time on this site. very helpfull information.

Although i have a problem starting up my second hand bought LaCie 5Big network 2 NAS.

I have tried to write de image blsfsg uploaded here, but i do not get the partitions mentioned.

When i use dd to write the image, it does not see the drive until i make a partition en give it a letter.

however there are no partition written on the hdd after dd is done writing.

Can anyone help me with this problem.

I am an windows 10 user and i have 5x1TB seagate drives.

@ codexlacie: could you post a link to the UBUNTU live CD you used... i could not find one which works.

All the help is welcome

Unless you eagerly want Lacie firmware, I recommend you to have a look at plugout.net. They have a supported 3th party firmware for your box, and are very helpful to get that installed.
