thank you very much for your reply
Without access to the command line of the box as user
"root", you will not be able to do anything regarding the OS.
To get there, you need to "open" the box or to flash a patched firmware.
So where is my starting Point?
I got out the old HD already, there is a /boot
partition and another /root
as well a data partition. It's my "back up"!
I just wanted to use a new disk for the "new" system/OS... so my ultimate fallback is to put the old hd (old os) in again...
I don't want to change the boot-loader (u-boot) which is located in the flash(?
) .. unless it's necessary (is it?
).... My goal is a clean Debian 7 Installation - what is the fastest (most straight forrward) way?
There is no way to replace the "old" system files with the "new" debian ones? Does the installer start then or why not? Is the system bootable or do I need to change u-boot?

And I found this one: http://web.archive.org/web/201012220225 ... uroboxpro/
it's for the kurobox... but it has the same arch than the lspro, right? Could I use the guides on this site for my LS-GL?^^
If you break anything during installation of a different OS,
you will need serial connection or you take the risk to get
a "brick" (which is less likely, if you do not change the boot
In case I brick my device it should still be possible to at a hardware-hack (serial-port) and get it back alive - isn't it?
But... actually this is why I ask so much... I don't want to brick, I want debian!
thanks for your help so far!
