Help: my DNS won't boot!

Here is my configuration: DNS-313 revA1. Last week, I installed transmission, and it went wrong: after rebooting, the device LED goes to green whatever I tried to do...

So, I decided to delete all partitions, hard-erase every data on my DD, and start from fresh, with DCC connect.... but that doesn't solve the problem either: the installation process seems to be OK, until it asks to restart.... and at that point: nothing! the device stays on, with the green light.

Then, I go back to USB, and here is the surprise: nothing was done! The partitions have not been created, the whole disk is unallocated! it's like the whole process was doing nothing at all

I can't figure what is the problem: for the moment, I can only access it through USB, all other functions seems dead

Anyone has any idea ?

Re: Help: my DNS won't boot!

Ok, I've been trying to get my box back on its feet this WE with no luck: the disk is in good shape, the USB functions are correct... I'm suspecting that somehow, the flash memory got corrupted (is this possible? maybe because of a power disconnection?).
I'd like to try one last thing (before transforming my DNS-313 into a noisy external USB drive): format the hard drive exactly as DCC would have done it, and copy the system in the partition as Dlink had planned.
But I don't know what size and format I should give those partitions, nor how tounpack those files. does anybody have information on this ?

Re: Help: my DNS won't boot!

I can try to help. What information do you need?

This is the partition table, on my 1 TB Seagate drive:
(note: I've increase partition /dev/sdv4)


sudo fdisk /dev/sdb
Command (m for help): p

Disk /dev/sdb: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders, total 1953525168 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000e1740

   Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1              63     1012094      506016   82  Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sdb2         6088635  1953520064   973715715    7  HPFS/NTFS/exFAT
/dev/sdb3   *     1012095     2024189      506047+  83  Linux
/dev/sdb4         2024190     6088634     2032222+  83  Linux

Partition table entries are not in disk order

I can create a tar.gz from /dev/sdb3, if you think it can be useful.

Maybe you can try to build a serial cable, in order to see what's going wrong during the boot process.
