Lenin,

Can you please retry reimaging the device?

Looks to me like (maybe) a problem with cookie or RAID initialization?

Please also monitor bootup of CD image - if you can record it and send it here.

Marcin

    3. Install flash cookie
    4. Install flash image from network
    5. Install flash image from cdrom
