    HELP - DM800 won't boot/can get in linux ?

    Hi

    Box has started playing up and will not boot. If i boot normally it goes as follows -

    boot 72
    flash/vlmlinux.gz


    it just sits there the ?


    If i boot with power on to reflash/linux mode i get the ip address showing but when i connect i get following message on laptop -

    This is the DM800 bootloader Web Interface.


    If you see this, your box didn't boot to Linux.
    Unless you interrupted the boot process, this usually means that you have no valid operating system in flash.
    Don't panic! It's not a problem. You can just flash a new version and everything will be fine!
    Otherwise, you can boot from network or USB.
    If you're about to give up, you might get help at the Dream Multimedia Support board!
    Currently there aren't many other features...

    You can download your current flash contents (64 MB) here, but please don't expect to be able to flash it back. It's merely a debugging feature.
    This device's Serial Number is 40845, and was built on 2008/10/29.

    Booloader version: Dreambox Second Stage Loader BUILD #72, built 20090303

    device info firmware upgrade


    I am guessing the flash is corrupt. How can i reflash this ? Is it stored on the simm (which i have cleaned/reseated)

    Cheers
