Below sets out how I was able to 1) configure an IX2-DL to boot from a USB Debian rootfs, with u-boot env access and then 2) from the internal GPT partitioned sata drives. Without needing to update the u-boot to something more modern and functional.

Note: you cannot go back to Stock after making these changes as the IX2’s stock partitions will be deleted. You could try making stock co-exist, I have no interest in booting stock again.

I used a serial console throughout, theoretically these steps could be completed using fw_setenv from ssh, but I'd recommend having a TTL cable available for if anything fails.

Start with USB booting to get Debian running (Bodhi’s 4.12 rootfs);
setenv load_initrd 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x2100000 /boot/uInitrd'
setenv load_uimage 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x800000 /boot/uImage'
setenv usb_boot 'usb start; run load_uimage; run load_initrd; bootm 0x800000 0x2100000'
setenv bootargs 'console=ttyS0,115200 root=LABEL=rootfs rootdelay=10 mtdparts=orion_nand:0x80000@0(uboot),0x20000@0xa0000(env),0x20000@0xc0000(env2),0x300000@0x100000(uImage),0x400000@0x400000(initrd),0x3f800000@0x800000(boot),1024m@0x0(flash)  earlyprintk=serial'

Optional, use ar-lex’s DTS and DTB, specific to the IX2-DL (only)
IX2-DL custom DTB

This will give you a system booting Debian from USB, with USB rootfs;

To access u-boot variables from Debian (usually problematic with this box) add this to /etc/fw_env.config
# MTD device name       Device offset   Env. size       Flash sector size      $
/dev/mtd1 0x0000 0x20000 0x20000
/dev/mtd2 0x0000 0x20000 0x20000
Only 1 entry should be required (MTD1), on my IX2 it oddly needs both to read and write the variables, but works and doesn’t throw errors.
This means we have a 100% functional kernel and Debian install on USB, without upgrading u-boot.

Part II – booting from sata/IDE w/ GPT partition table
The IX2-DL is a dual drive NAS, so we can host rootfs and images on the sata drives. I originally planned to write the uImage and uInitrd to flash, turns out the stock partitions are too small and the mtd sizes would have to change and Bodhi doesn’t recommend flash booting anyway. So I used the sata drives to host the images instead.

This is easiest to set up if the drives are blank, if you can back up your data and start fresh that will be easiest. For drives under 2TB you could then partition using MBR and u-boot will be able to load the images off an ext2 /boot partition.
I didn’t have sufficient storage to back up the 3TB of data I have on the IX2, so took the risk.

The main issue with loading images from large sata drives, or drives partitioned by the stock install, is the old u-boot doesn’t support GPT. This means u-boot doesn’t recognise any partitions on the drives. There is a way around this though, documented by Eine here;
Booting from GPT drive on stock u-boot

This solution uses ‘ide read’ in u-boot to load the uImage and uInitrd directly from drive sectors, ignoring the partition table. To make it work you need a drive partitioned with free space at the beginning, 128MiB is sufficient.

To avoid losing any of my stored data on the drives I kept the mdadm setup for the DATA volume group, but deleted MD0, the stock raid 1 root file system. That give 20GB of free space on each drive. This has risks, be careful, if you can backup first do so.
Example Partition table:
Model: ATA ST1000DM003-9YN1 (scsi)
Disk /dev/sdc: 1000GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/4096B
Partition Table: gpt
Disk Flags:

Number  Start   End     Size    File system  Name     Flags
 1      128MB   21.5GB  21.4GB   ext4        rootfs
 2      21.5GB  1000GB  979GB                primary  msftdata

Partition 1 is where you extract Bodhi’s rootfs and configure using his instructions (or copy your existing USB rootfs). Partition 2 is the existing mdadm raid / LVM volume.

Next write a working uImage and uInitrd to the unpartitioned space before partition 1, avoiding the GPT table. Make sure the dd is to the drive partitioned above!

/kernels# dd if=uImage of=/dev/sdc bs=1MiB seek=10
3+1 records in
3+1 records out
4171272 bytes (4.2 MB, 4.0 MiB) copied, 3.1455 s, 1.3 MB/s

/kernels# dd if=uInitrd of=/dev/sdc bs=1MiB seek=20
9+1 records in
9+1 records out
9762728 bytes (9.8 MB, 9.3 MiB) copied, 0.196305 s, 49.7 MB/s

Reboot into u-boot to load the images from the sata drive. Key here is in Eine’s guide the uInitrd was smaller, we need to change the ide read command to load the entire image into memory by setting the size to 0x4F00 (up from 0x4000).

The ide device command sets which drive is being read from, needed as this is a 2 drive NAS.

The imi command then confirms that the loaded image is complete.

If all went to plan save the new bootcmd using fw_setenv in Debian, or write the new bootcmd from u-boot.

Enjoy your upgraded IX2-DL, all without needing any u-boot change.

Any questions let me know.

Further details on the ix2-dl should anyone need them, I've added some useful items to my Google Drive share;

- the recovery usb creator
- uboot GPL sources
- 'Lifeline' GPL sources
- ix2-dl specific DTB

Available here; IX2-DL software

I also have a copy of the images on the UBIFS flash, nothing particular of note that isn't explained in the posts above.

It looks OK to me, as far as the envs. So try writing uImage and uInitrd to the HDD sectors again.

Hi edd;

I agree with Bodhi, try re-writing the kernel and image to the sectors.

Once they're written use imi command in uboot to test to make certain they're loading correctly.

If you're using different / more recent images they may be larger than mine and require revised load commands to load the whole image (most likely the initrd has grown).

Hi guys, thanks for yoru contributins to this forum especially jdwl101 + bodi. Hoping you can help me. I'm trying to revive an old ix2dl without drives. Don't really have a use for it, but figured learning a bit would be neat prjoect and maybe repurpose this instead of it going to the recycler.
I tried following the guide and can't seem to get to boot from USB i'm using the 4.12 rootfs file.

I do this:
setenv load_initrd 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x2100000 /boot/uInitrd'
setenv load_uimage 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x800000 /boot/uImage'
setenv usb_boot 'usb start; run load_uimage; run load_initrd; bootm 0x800000 0x2100000'
setenv bootargs 'console=ttyS0,115200 root=LABEL=rootfs rootdelay=10 mtdparts=orion_nand:0x80000@0(uboot),0x20000@0xa0000(env),0x20000@0xc0000(env2),0x300000@0x100000(uImage),0x400000@0x400000(initrd),0x3f800000@0x800000(boot),1024m@0x0(flash) earlyprintk=serial'


Get teh following error:

Full disclosure I really have no idea what I'm doing but willing to learn.
Hope you can help.

ix2fbz,


Your bootcmd is currently:

bootcmd=ide reset; ide read 0x40000 0x800 0x1800; ide read 0x900000 0x2000 0x2000; setenv bootargs $(console) $(bootargs_root) $(bootargs_mtd) $(bootargs_end); bootm 0x40000 0x900000;run bo2

And you did
setenv load_initrd 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x2100000 /boot/uInitrd' 
setenv load_uimage 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x800000 /boot/uImage' 
setenv usb_boot 'usb start; run load_uimage; run load_initrd; bootm 0x800000 0x2100000' 
setenv bootargs 'console=ttyS0,115200 root=LABEL=rootfs rootdelay=10 mtdparts=orion_nand:0x80000@0(uboot),0x20000@0xa0000(env),0x20000@0xc0000(env2),0x300000@0x100000(uImage),0x400000@0x400000(initrd),0x3f800000@0x800000(boot),1024m@0x0(flash) earlyprintk=serial'

That was not enough. So try again

With the USB rootfs attached, interrupt serial console and run the same envs, but also need to modify bootcmd env:

setenv load_initrd 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x2100000 /boot/uInitrd' 
setenv load_uimage 'ext2load usb 0:1 0x800000 /boot/uImage' 
setenv usb_boot 'usb start; run load_uimage; run load_initrd; bootm 0x800000 0x2100000' 
setenv bootargs 'console=ttyS0,115200 root=LABEL=rootfs rootdelay=10 mtdparts=orion_nand:0x80000@0(uboot),0x20000@0xa0000(env),0x20000@0xc0000(env2),0x300000@0x100000(uImage),0x400000@0x400000(initrd),0x3f800000@0x800000(boot),1024m@0x0(flash) earlyprintk=serial'
setenv bootcmd 'run usb_boot; ide reset; ide read 0x40000 0x800 0x1800; ide read 0x900000 0x2000 0x2000; setenv bootargs $(console) $(bootargs_root) $(bootargs_mtd) $(bootargs_end); bootm 0x40000 0x900000'

And then
boot

You're a legend bodhi! Thanks for your help. It boots off USB now.

I'm getting the following error:
Gave up waiting for root file system device. Common problems:
- Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
- Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
- Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; ls /dev)
ALERT! LABEL=rootfs does not exist. Dropping to a shell!


I feel like the first time it booted it went further than this. I tried extending the rootdelay (20s) but this ddin't help. I must be doing something incorrectly creating the rootfs usb stick?
ix2fbz,

That error usually inidicates that the rootfs partition was not labeled as rootfs.

So mount the USB rootfs on another Linux box. Assuming it is assigned as /dev/sdb1,

Check if the label was actually rootfs
e2label /dev/sdb1
If not, set it

e2label /dev/sdb1 rootfs
sync
And then try booting again.

thanks bodhi! USB booting working like a charm!

Trying to figure out IDE booting now.

In my limited understanding dd'd the usb drive I created to spare HD i had a round. I created an ext2 20gb partition and named it rootfs.

Then I tried via tty to boot from this:


setenv load_initrd 'ext2load ide 0:1 0x2100000 /boot/uInitrd' 
setenv load_uimage 'ext2load ide 0:1 0x800000 /boot/uImage' 
setenv ide_boot 'run load_uimage; run load_initrd; bootm 0x800000 0x2100000' 
setenv bootargs 'console=ttyS0,115200 root=LABEL=rootfs rootdelay=10 mtdparts=orion_nand:0x80000@0(uboot),0x20000@0xa0000(env),0x20000@0xc0000(env2),0x300000@0x100000(uImage),0x400000@0x400000(initrd),0x3f800000@0x800000(boot),1024m@0x0(flash) earlyprintk=serial'
setenv bootcmd 'run ide_boot; ide reset; ide read 0x40000 0x800 0x1800; ide read 0x900000 0x2000 0x2000; setenv bootargs $(console) $(bootargs_root) $(bootargs_mtd) $(bootargs_end); bootm 0x40000 0x900000'

then run boot

Problem is I get a bad partiion then badmagic number error.
In debian I can mount the drive and view the files. Could the dd method of duplicating the usb drive be the problem?

Hi ix2fbz,

Using dd to copy your usb to the hard disk is unlikely to work, create a new partition and create a new rootfs on it, using the original archive.

You can copy a rootfs - there are some instructions in the wiki post - but I'd suggest starting fresh.

Also, to start the hard disk booting first try loading the kernel and initrd from your usb drive before going full hard disk booting. This will eliminate issues 1 at a time.

Cheers,
J
good day,

i hope this is the right place to ask a maybe stupid question, which I cannot find easily an answer for by scrolling through all these threads.
I have a working iomega ix2-ng and a spare iomega ix2-ng, which i would like to use with full Debian.
Is a serial connection/jtag needed to set this up ? Can it be done without, by preparing on another linux pc the disk and inserting it into the ix2-ng ? if the latter is true, how to prepare the image ( i guess the partition labelled rootfs) so that it will allow ssh / telnet connectivity to take over control ?

thank you
sverfaillie,

Yes. Since jdwl101 started with serial console, the instruction is based on that.

To write an installation procedure starting from inside stock OS, jdwl101 or somebody needs to go back to stock and test that. So it is not available.

After you got it booted with Debian rootfs, then SSH in as usual.

Hi,

As Bodhi said a serial console is really needed for the ix2. You need to be able to see what happens as it runs through uboot. That said, the serial pins are present on the board so it is very easy to connect to.

While it could be possible to make the required uboot changes from the default OS, I wasn't able to get that to work due to limitations in the default set up and you may be left with a box that won't boot anything.

If you use my instructions it should be straightforward to get it running. Start with usb first. These boxes are pretty quick and useful once the factory software is replaced.

Also, you will need to prepare a debian usb stick on another linux box. Bodhi's instructions are pretty straightforward.

Happy to answer any questions you have.
Dear Bodhi and jdwl101,

I am now trying to boot from HDD and with a lot of trying finally getting it working
everything worked out fine, even the image gave OK check. Till that point of removing the usb and then set the env and boot with this:

setenv bootcmd 'ide device 1; ide read 0x40000 0x5000 0x2000; ide read 0x2100000 0xA000 0x4F00; bootm 0x40000 0x2100000'

it gave me a fail on check of the linux kernel and didn't wanna start. I was reading here

i checked the ide read of another post here and they where different so i tried those:

setenv bootcmd 'run usb_boot; ide reset; ide read 0x40000 0x800 0x1800; ide read 0x900000 0x2000 0x2000; setenv bootargs $(console) $(bootargs_root) $(bootargs_mtd) $(bootargs_end); bootm 0x40000 0x900000'

with this i made myowne setenv command:

setenv bootcmd 'ide device 1; ide read 0x40000 0x800 0x1800; ide read 0x2100000 0xA000 0x4F00; bootm 0x40000 0x900000'

With this command and then boot it started from HDD opened the initfs and the kernel., but then something strange happened:



Marvell>> setenv bootcmd 'ide device 1; ide read 0x40000 0x800 0x1800; ide read 0x2100000 0xA000 0x4F00; bootm 0x40000 0x900000'

And this never stops. I even cannot get a reset or nothing only powering off helps.
I tried to look on internet for help but couldn't find any anwser.

I hope that one of you can help me with this.

Many many thanks in advanced special Bodhi for helping me out to get USB flawlessly working.
You are booting a version 2.6 kernel, looks to be stock. That is not going to work.

Follow my instructions to the letter and write a modern kernel to the drive sectors, that will be able to boot bodhi’s rootfs
