Installation fails after "done, booting the kernel."


I have successfully debianized a Seagate Dockstar a long time ago, and
wanted to do the same thing to two other Dockstars. I followed the
at [1] but when I try to boot, the last output is always:

Marvell>> bootm 0x00800000 0x01100000

Starting kernel ...

Uncompressing Linux... done, booting the kernel.

Then no output occurs, the orange led is constantly lit and I have to
reset the dockstar. Caputuring ethernet traffic for a couple of
also shows no activity. The same behaviour happens on two different
dockstars, so I assume it is no hardware failure.

After a reset, the dockstar boots into uboot just fine. I can install
different uboot versions as well. Always the same problem: no more
output after "booting the kernel".

I have also tried to restore the original firmware ([2]), with almost
the same results, except that the orange led is flashing in that case.

Any thoughts?
