started with it.When i power my hawkboard, the hawkboard logo is
getting displayed on the monitor but when i connect a
null(serial)cable I am not getting any messages in my

Well Narayanan, quite a lot has happened in the last 12 months. If you look back through the group's history you'll see the details. In summary, you may be lucky and have an early board, but if it's from the second (and final) run then it won't work. The manufacturers have gone from outright denial to total silence, so the Hawkboard project is essentially dead.

Cheers,
Frog

Hmm Thanks for your info. So no way of getting help from the forum?

You may get a little help but I think that there are very few people still working with this device (and many disgruntled ex-developers). Good luck.

Cheers,

Hi Badri,

Just check which batch is your Hawkboard from. If it's from batch one, it should work out well. Read: http://elinux.org/Hawkboard#Common_Issues
If you are seeing hawkboard logo on VGA, ur board might be ok, just check cable/config/connection.

hi viral,
        cable and config seems ok.I even tried for the procedure of putting u-boot as given in elinux using TI's UartHost.exe software.But its waiting for BOOTME, and displays the error as Invalid BootMe received and is aborted.

No offense, but the last thing the ARM community needs is another repository for knowledge.  It's hard enough to find good answers as it is.  And the Beagleboard community mailing list and IRC is extremely active already, why would anyone from there post on a new forum?

whenever i connect my board, my tx led is blinking for sometime and
'nothing' is getting displayed on my cutecom and also the hawkboard
logo comes on the monitor. my serial settings are as per in the elinux
hawkboard site. Will there be any probability that the serial chip
might have got damaged?? I also tried hyperterminal the result is
same..I even tried recovery of u-boot, it shows the message as
'Invalid Boot Me received' and is getting aborted.Kindly help
me.Thanks!
