  1. Hello, Since a week I try moving the OS on the sdcard to an attached SSD. OS: Armbian 5.65 Ubuntu Xenial 3.4.113 desktop Because the BPIM1 has a genuime SATA interface it should work. I have found dozens of tutorials how to do this. Until now I did not find any tutorial that works. Of course I started with nand-install expecting this would work out of the box. But after the install and rebooting I got the notification that it couldn't find the ssd. I guess I have to change something in the bootloader on the sdcard? (I am not a Linux expert but an enthustiastic Linux user) Is there any working tutorial including the final steps? Kind regards, André Reinink From the Armbian docs: On Allwinner devices after switching to boot from NAND or eMMC clearing the boot loader signature on the SD card is recommended: dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblkN bs=1024 seek=8 count=1 (replace /dev/mmcblkN with the correct device node – in case you run this directly after nand-sata-install without a reboot in between then it’s /dev/mmcblk0). 9FEB2019: I did add this extra step after the nand-install. After executing this and restarting, the BPIM2 doesn't boot anymore? What did I do wrong? 10FEB2019: After 7th attempts I changed the SSD (Intel 180GB) for an OCZ 120GB). Attempt number 8 with the OCZ was succesfull with nand-sata-install. No problems at all. I am happy:-)
