I really need help. Have been meddling it for 3 days in a row. In short, below is what I had done:
a. Follow the instructions from http://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv5 ... oflex-home
b. Rebooted with SATA 1TB but unable to config the correct MAC address successfully. The MAC address changes on each new reboot.
c. Wanting to fixed on to the MAC address to its original device, prepared a usb boot disk, flashed the UBoot to the latest (discovered some errors on checking and bypass them and flashing was a success.); http://jeff.doozan.com/debian/uboot/
d. Thereafter, I can no longer boot from SATA no matter how hard I tried.
e. Then my unit boot had gotten bad CRC, so re update the bootloader with step 16 of http://archlinuxarm.org/platforms/armv5 ... oflex-home
at the Ubit prompt.
f. Now I can see my unit is connected to network via the original MAC address. But I am still unable to boot from my SATA drive.
Any help will be great.
Tried for hours and hours but don't know if I am doing the correct way. Now i don't know what is the next step.
P.S. I am running Ubuntu 11.04 Guest OS VM on OSX. Tried to get info from netconsole but just could not figure out how to use even from the instructions i searched in this forum. I am a n00b to Linux. In fact, i started learning Linux only for this setup.
