I have a LS-XH1.5TL with no disk. I am trying to install a Hitachi deskstar 500Gb, but I can't get the Linkstation firmware installed. (The disk is formatted as ext3 on a linux machine, just one partition)
I have it connected to my laptop, the network adapter is set to 192.168.11.1
I have tftp boot 1.41, it starts, I hold down the function button, and get the ..$kernel, 5337 Blocks Served and .......$initrd, 21348 Blocks served messages, and the light blinks blue.
This is where the problems start. I have tried firmware 1.24 and the latest 1.56, with varying success - sometimes it starts with the 6 red led flashes, sometimes it just continually flashes blue and eventually changes to amber with error 25.
Also sometimes during update, the linkststion decides to go look for a new ip address and because it can't find a dhcp server, changes to a 169.x.x.x address,and the update fails. I tried to set the ip through NAS navigator, but it also fails and reverts back to dhcp. As a kind of kludgy workaround, I set up a dhcp server on that network adapter to give a 192.168.11.x address.
Could someone kindly tell me exact procedure to get it up and running, and also links where necessary? This is driving me nuts
