Power LED (green)
|blink||Bootup, prior to Flash ROM update, and ppc_uartd starting.|
|blink slowly||Shutdown timer has been activated. Box will shutdown soon.|
If ppc_uartd does not start for some reason (or is started late due to hardware/software issues), the Power LED will continue blinking. After five minutes the DIAG LED will continuously blink 6 times (hard drive failure) and then shut the box down.
|blue||1000BASE-T (Kurobox HG only)|
DISK FULL LED (red)
|on||Hard drive full|
|blink||Writing to Flash ROM|
DIAG LED (red)
|3 times blink||Partition warning: /dev/hda3 is not mounted on /mnt. You can ignore it.|
|4 times blink||Problem with the cooling fan - probably rotor jammed.|
|5 times blink||Problem with Flash ROM*|
|6 times blink||Hard drive not found, or ppc_uartd not running.|
|7 times blink||Problem with the RAM, Ethernet Controller, or IDE Host Controller.|
|blink many times||Writing to Flash ROM.|
* It may be possible to recover from a Flash ROM error by pulling out the power cord and trying to boot again the next day.

Notes: Users have reported problems when the drive already has a Linux partition on it-- the DIAG LED blinks 6 times. The solution appears to be to simply to reformat the drive.
