When i connect my drive I get a continout blinking blue light. I tried following instructions to do TFTP Boot. The drive connects and then the blue ligt goes off and i get the below ;


accepting requests..
Client 192.168.11.150:3938 C:\Users\osman.s\Documents\Downloads\TFTP2\boot\TFTP
Boot Recovery\uImage.buffalo, 4078 Blocks Served
Client 192.168.11.150:3936 C:\Users\osman.s\Documents\Downloads\TFTP2\boot\TFTP
Boot Recovery\initrd.buffalo, 16645 Blocks Served

The light stays off for a few seconds and then the light starts flashing blue again. During the time the light is off I try to connect to the drive but nothing works. What am i doing wrong?

Nothing.

Yor firmware is damaged

delete the damaged firmware

DO NOT DELETE A PARTITION!

flash your firmware

example:
15) Bei Bedarf das defekte System löschen

Oxygen,

I actually removed partitions since this was outlined in the TFTP process. Unfortunately the link you sent is in German and after translating its still not clear what i need to do. Im not an expert and not sure how to generate the cmd lines. Im using windows PC. Is there any other ref i can follow. Thxs

Then remove all partition.

Your data will be lost

and start with tftp.

You will have no reboot loop with a new firmware

I tried TFTP and it connected and started to load the two files but after that nothing happened.
Below is the log generated.

After running the procedure;

http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Res ... om_scratch.

Everything works upto step#2 of BOOTING THE RESCUE SYSTEM.

I looked into some other forums and found this;

http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Rev ... om_scratch

It describes the issue i get when i try to use the TFTP Boot program;

"If the box is stuck permanently pulling the initrd.buffalo and uImage.buffalo files over and over again or simply fails to appear in LSUpdate extract the HD as described below and connect it a PC running Linux - Knoppix is ideal for the purpose if you typically use windows"

Since im not familiar with Linux can you propose another solution?
