Hi,

I have a Cloudbox (white) on which I want to test fvdw, so I took out the original 3 TB disk and inserted a 500 GB WD Green Power disk. Then I followed the instructions on http://plugout.net/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2224 including those in the help file install_fvdw_sl_firmware_hlp.zip; I selected the 'UIMAGE-3142-NWSP2CL-KIRKWOOD-24-standalone' kernel file.
Everything went smooth with the installation but after the reboot command

Code:
reboot -f


the NAS wouldn't boot, the LED just blinks quickly in blue and there is no telnet or other connection.
I tried both the GPT and the MBR options, with the same result.
I attach the installer.log file and below is the output from gdisk:

Code:
root@fvdw-sta-kirkwood:/ # gdisk -l /dev/sda
GPT fdisk (gdisk) version 0.8.5

Partition table scan:
  MBR: MBR only
  BSD: not present
  APM: not present
  GPT: present

Found valid MBR and GPT. Which do you want to use?
 1 - MBR
 2 - GPT
 3 - Create blank GPT

Your answer: 1
Disk /dev/sda: 976773168 sectors, 465.8 GiB
Logical sector size: 512 bytes
Disk identifier (GUID): 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000
Partition table holds up to 128 entries
First usable sector is 34, last usable sector is 976773134
Partitions will be aligned on 8-sector boundaries
Total free space is 647636 sectors (316.2 MiB)

Number  Start (sector)    End (sector)  Size       Code  Name
   1          128520         1156679   502.0 MiB   8300  Linux filesystem
   2         1156680         2184839   502.0 MiB   8300  Linux filesystem
   3         2184840         3212999   502.0 MiB   8200  Linux swap
   5         3341520         5012279   815.8 MiB   8300  Linux filesystem
   6         5140800         5269319   62.8 MiB    8300  Linux filesystem
   7         5397840         6425999   502.0 MiB   8300  Linux filesystem
   8         6554520       976768064   462.6 GiB   8300  Linux filesystem


I also tried with 2 different 500 GB disks, so I don't think there can be something wrong with the disk.
How can I fix the boot issue?

Thank you in advance!

EDIT: I couldn't attach my log file so I post it here:

The log looks fine to me. I think you'd better ask this at plugout.

yes better post your fvdw-sl question on plugout.
This part of the log is not normal
Code:
Getting firmware image from tftp server
writing firmware to partition 7
74308+1 records in
74308+1 records out
38046207 bytes (36.3MB) copied, 2.806867 seconds, 12.9MB/s

the firmware file should 256 MB, so seem you are using a wrong firmware file
what files do you have in tftp\firmware directory of the fvdw-sl console ? (I assume you use fvdw-sl console 5.5)

Aah, good spot @fvdw, it turned out that the 4 rar files were not extracted properly and I was missing lots of files... I made a new download, extracted again and everything went as it should. Thanks, it's up and running now and I can't wait to try it!
