Debian on Seagate Personal Cloud and Seagate NAS


I found that it should be possible to install Debian on a Seagate
Personal Cloud and I would like to do it. That is great!

My model is SRN21C (Personal Cloud).

I've followed the available instructions on:

1) The tftp server is running and I'm able to get the files
2) I can access the U-Boot console with clunc and run the commands:

setenv serverip
setenv ipaddr
tftpboot 0x2000000 uImage
tftpboot 0x5100000 uInitrd
tftpboot 0x5000000 armada-370-seagate-personal-cloud.dtb
setenv fdt_high 0xffffffff
setenv initrd_high 0xffffffff
bootm 0x2000000 0x5100000 0x5000000

But after the message:
Starting kernel ...
nothing more happens. I can't connect with ssh. I can't ping to the
machine. There is no network connection to the NAS.

NAS lights seems ok to me (they go from white to red and then white
again), but the NAS is not listen on the network after 'Sarting kernel...'

How can I check what is going wrong? Is there any log file where to look
for errors? Can I run netconsole or something similar to see what is
going on?

The bootm messages seems ok to me:

Marvell>> bootm 0x2000000 0x5100000 0x5000000
bootm 0x2000000 0x5100000 0x5000000
