Problem booting GoFlexHome
February 23, 2017 12:00PM
Hi bodhi
I was able to install current rootfs and had it up and running but when I tried to update kernel 4.9.0 I updated the env variables at 4a
fw_setenv load_dtb 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x1c00000 /boot/dts/kirkwood-goflexnet.dtb'    
fw_setenv load_initrd 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x1100000 /boot/uInitrd'
fw_setenv load_uimage 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x800000 /boot/uImage'
fw_setenv usb_boot 'run load_dtb; run load_uimage; if run load_initrd; then bootm 0x800000 0x1100000 0x1c00000; else bootm 0x800000 - 0x1c00000; fi'


but I somehow managed to mess up the variables and can't boot except into rescue.

I succeeded int updating uboot to U-Boot 2016.05-tld-1 (Jun 12 2016 - 13:30:55 -0700)
Seagate GoFlex Home
but still can't boot to os.
I restored the os I had on it prior to updating but still can't boot.

Could I get some help in getting the env variables straightened out so I can boot this thing?

I don't use netconsole but rather a usb/serial console to kermit/minicom on a linux laptop. so the netconsole could go away.

Thanks much

maihoaomv,

You have flashed the 2016.05 u-boot image, but you did not flash the u-boot envs image (uboot.2016.05-tld-1.environment.img) in step 8:

Quote

8. Flashing default u-boot envs image:
......
A special section (B. Flashing default u-boot envs image) about flashing default u-boot envs is included at the end of this installation procedure. Please follow the instruction in this section B to perform this step before continuing with step 9.

Solution:

Take a look at this post to see how to use the default script I provided in that post to set the envs to the 2016.05 settings during boot at serial console:

http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?3,29362,29390#msg-29390

------

After you have booted into Debian rootfs again, you can save the envs permanently by either :

1. flash the uboot.2016.05-tld-1.environment.img using step 8, or
2. you can boot back to serial console, load the envs script again, and then use saveenv to save the default envs .

it worked ok with 4.4 kernel in the latest rootfs release. after several attempts i still couldn't get 4.9 to work at all. i finally got it to work with 4.10. don't know what happened.
thank you for your assistance.
