My Linkstation ls-vl arrived about 2 weeks ago, I just bought new seagate barracuda 1tb 7200 hard drive 2 days ago and mount it as the seller described at manual pdf (http://www.mediafire.com/file/2fdz6mc83b7bk3d/Setup_Guide_Buffalo_LS_ict360_V1.8.pdf
). I followed the guide step by step 50 times or more, but its still not working
. Let me explain whats happening and someone guide me to finish the job please. When i turn the nas on, it starts with blue light blinking, after a while it turns to red light blinking 6 times. By pressing function button the light turns to blinking blue again, and tftp screen shows nothing. Im sure that i did everything from the guide. I completely uninstalled antivirus programs and turned off firewall, changed ip to 192.168.11.1 but i never get to 1.8 part of the guide. Im sure that the hard drive i bought was unpartitioned as it was new and i opened the package. I decided to look anyway. I tried using windows administative tool, knoppix live linux, gparted live linux and windows installation disks to delete partition. Same result everytime. I dont know if any of those software neccesary the seller never send me the link for the Essential software to rebuild the HDD.
My friends i wasted more than 10 hours today and cant make it work, i wasted my weekend holiday for it. Can someone please point me some good guide that i can follow and make it work? i tried to use 3 different pc's in case of the one i use not working, different hubs, cables even creating the partitions under knoppix and copy boot files, but i got 7 reds this time. Im affraid that its totally bricked and it will need jtag at the end. please can someone help me as soon as possible please...Thanks...
