Hi again buddy!

I have bad news! :´-(
With your great help, my buffalo returned to work (I should have stopped there).

But I found a post of you about Debian on WXL (http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Deb ... _others%29)
As I use RAID, I also followed http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Ini ... _Raid-Boot
All steps had worked like a charm.
BUT, when I reboot it............... The boot loop had returned.
WORST: Your previous solution not work anymore.

Checking in a linux live cd, both that partitions are empty :-/

So I put a NEW blank disk (alone) and problem remains. No red led displays.
I tried power on, pressing function buttom, but it starts to flash power AND function with BLUE led and reboot.
According Buffalo start guide, I connected it (the new disk) in Windows, opened diskpart, select it and command "clean".
Boot loop persists

Any idea?

Remove the initrd and linuxrc file from your data partition 6
Do not delete other files
Do not delete the partition

which samsung?
512 bytes per sector or 4096 bytes per sector?
4096 bytes per sector drives have to mark as gpt, not as mbr

My mistake. Its a western digital 1 tb model wd10eads

It seems that is 4k sector
http://www.drobospace.com/forums/showth ... p?tid=2505

The 250gb disks can be cleared. No problem about this.

Btw, I have a samsung 1tb disk in another device (dvr). I wish make it a second disk (raid 1) with that WD in future

Hi,

Using windows 7, I converted that *blank* 1TB disk with GPT.
I installed it in NAS, but the loop boot remains! No red led.
Why? This disk is empty!!!
I'm desperate...

The good news, it's that my original data are safe in a external HD.

Is there some "factory reset"?

PS: Because your help, you deserve a gift from me :-)

I followed the steps. Power On with Function pressed. When function blue led, press again function buttom.
According FAQ it should became amber, but it flash power and function with blue

Nice Video.

I will read the 2 howtos you have used.

Have you modified the bootloader?

Try booting with 2 drives without any aprtition.
Both drives with gpt.
