I've bought a used LS-XHL which has no harddisk. But I've got 2 hdds which I want to install in the NAS. Unfortunately updating the firmware with LSUpdater does not succeed. I searched many hours in this forum and others but didn't find an answer yet.
The 2 hdds Samsung HD154UI and WD6400-AAKS do not have any partition and are not formatted. When I install a harddisk and start the NAS the red LED flashes 6 times (E06). That means the hdd is recognized but the firmware is corrupted. Then I set on my computer (Win7 / XP) the IP 192.168.11.1 and connect the NAS directly or over a switch with my PC. The firewall is completely off. After starting "TFTP Boot Recovery 1.24 All 4 Models" it waits for reception. Now I press the function button and the LED starts flashing faster in blue color. After 5s TFTP starts downloading the two images:
I close TFTP and start LSUpdater 1.34, downloaded directly from http://www.buffalotech.com/support/downloads/
. After 10s the LS-XHL is found and the blue LED glows continuously.
When I connect the NAS directly to the PC the IP is 169.254.25.50 instead of 192.168.139.103 but everything else is the same. In the debug-window I tried nearly all possibilities, also rebuild partition table:
Finally I click Update, but it says "Could not confirm whether the parition exists. Cannot update the firmware. Firmware updating is aborted":
That's the point where I do not know how to continue. Why does it want to confirm that a partition exists? I thought it should be a hdd without partition and formatting! Or should it have a ext3 format?
I have exactly the same error message in Windows 7 and XP and with both hdds. But both hdds are working fine in Windows and do not seem to have any problem. The Samsung is brand new.
Would someone provide his LS-XHL image without personal data, only with the partitions needed for booting? I think that would be a solution.
I tested FW1.31 mod by Shonk and other versions which can be found on buffalo.nas-central.org but it's always the same (LSUpdater.exe seems to be almost the same). But I do not think that the internal flash or the ARM9 has a problem because TFTP works fine and LSUpdater and NasNavi find the NAS.
Does someone has an idea? I'd be glad to find a solution
