    Out the top of my head, here's how I did it: 1. Flash image provide on ARMbian page using Etcher 2. After successful flash insert SD card and boot 3. Find out what the IP of your system is (you can use for instance Angry IP scanner or login to your router which handles the IP's) 4. Connect via SSH to this IP (first start requires password change) 5. Run the code below nand-sata-install 6. Select EMMC and (I believe) the preferred filesystem 7. Wait some time 8. Turn of your system, remove SD card and power system back on
  2. I'm using the Openmediavault+ARMbian image provided by Tkaiser. When I go to armbian-config --> System there is no 'Install - installs to SATA, eMMC, NAND or USB' option (according ARMBian documentation it should be there ). Just checked at a Odroid HC1 and a Banana pi 1, both running the "same" Openmediavault+ARMbian ROM. They also don't have the option van 'Install' option available. @Igor, @tkaiser is this option moved to a different location? Or just not present for the Openmedivault+ARMbian combo?

    I see multiple people facing issues with the OS on eMMC. Is it safe to "Etcher" the ROM below to a SD card, apt update && apt upgrade, followed by a nand-sata-install in the armbina-config utility? ROM: OMV_4_NanoPC_T4.img.xz (2018-10-09) (source) Or could I install the ROM directly onto the eMMC by following the proces 'Flash Image under Windows with Type-C Cable' (FriendlyARM wiki)? The wiki mentions "images-for-eflasher" so I'm unsure if the ROM needs to be specifically prepared to enable this flashing method.
  4. Thank you for the prompt reply, then I will not invest in UASP hardware for now. I've also ordered the Y-cables. Hopefully that solves the 'OPi not booting with HDD's' issue. To be continued...
  5. The last days I'm testing (or at least, trying to test) if a Orange Pi Plus 2e is going to replace my NAS based on a Banana Pi M1*. I've connected the Orange pi to a 5V5A PSU and want to attach two HDD's to it. Without HDD's the Pi boots perfectly fine, trying to boot with the disks connected and it won't boot at all. Do I need to add a second power to the disks? If yes, how? Is a Y-cable the best practice? I could cut the 2nd USB plug (red one) and attach it to the PSU directly. After days of searching and reading I also find this 'UASP magic'. My current hardware is not compatible with UASP (I would need 2x enclosure and 2x Y-cable). Before I invest in new stuff, UASP only works with the mainline kernel and not with the legacy kernel? I've read that the Ethernet connection with mainline is buggy and that it is advised to use legacy for server applications. Would you advise to buy UASP compatible hardware and switch to the mainline kernel? *: on the banana pi I have two HDD's connected, one via sata and one via usb. Because of the current limit on the Micro usb plug I've attacehed the power input of the sata disk to the same power supply as the banana pi.
  6. I think I have the same issue on a Banana pi (non pro). Last weekend I started building my 'Banana-Pi-openmediavault' server from scratch with V5. In openmediavault I'm unable to mount the attached sata drive. When mounting OMV returns the following error: Failed to mount '*ID*': mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so I've tried formatting the HDD to ext3 and ext4, both to no avail.
