LS-WXL need TFTP boot program, please help.
« on: November 24, 2019, 11:03:03 pm »
I have LS-WXL. After changing of both HDDs I started TFTP boot programm v1.60 and flashed last firmware from buffalo website. As it described in much tutorials...

After that it forks fine and I can acces the linkstation BUT only till I power it down and up. After that it flashes red again and there is no connection to NAS Navigator.

After that I start TFTP program, and it works fine again, but only if I do not power it down.

My assumption, I use not coorect TFTP Program, not suitable for my model of NAS.

Please help me to find right TFTP Program for LS-WXL NAS.

Thank you in advance.

Typically, If you're doing an install via TFTP the TFTP server is only used to get the device to initially boot into EM mode to begin the process, it does not play a role after that.

The scenario you're describing makes it sound like you're boot partition has some sort of problem but the firmware is otherwise fine which is allowing it to skip EM mode and do a full boot when started from TFTP.

What you need to do is correct whatever the issue is with the boot partition so that it can boot from disk rather than TFTP. You should be able to correct this by using LSupdater in debug mode and have it re-install the boot files. Even better, you could start over from blank drives again and have it re-partition/format them for you (using the corresponding debug options).

Hi,

did you solve the problem? I replaced both HDDs of my LS-WXL and now it flashes red 6x. I cannot find any TFTP - could you tell me how to proceed?

Thank you!!!
