Ok so maybe the fiire station has an epia board in it or something, I don't know, but this is frustrating the hell out of me right now. I tried netboot, got the error, and checked in the device manager to see this "fiire station" thing listed where I thought I'd see "generic pc as md" or something similar. It fails every time it tries to detect, with the same error.
At one point I got so frustrated I sat and watched the files it was creating for the network image. It went fine for a while, made an "ubuntu" directory and started populating it. Then at the last moment it deleted all that and created a virtually empty "debian" directory before failing.
I just tried doing a disk-based setup to see if that was a way around it and got the same, exact same error. Any suggestions? For starters, is there a log file that might tell me what's going on beyond simply nd rather pointlessly repeating "diskless setup has failed"?
Why is it detected badly and screwing up like this? It's worked fine with a couple of test machines. This little box was meant to be the nice quiet media director in the corner and I bought this via board because I had the impression that LinuxMCE would work with it. Was I wrong?
