Install armbian on eMMC for Beelink Mini MXIII


Recommended Posts

On my Beelink Mini MXIII, I would like to run a home automation server (Jeedom) and many user based on RaspberryPI have issue with bad sector because SDCard cannot handle a lot of Read/Write cycles.


I successfully run armbian from SDCard, but I would like to copy it to eMMC. and change DTD in boot.ini, uEnv.ini, extlinux/extlinux.conf and then did a sudo nand-sata-install (Below is the load result)


I've been told that armbian kernel did not support this specitif eMMC controller (Brand FORESEE), I there a a to install drivers on armbian, or should I install armbian on a USBKey (how to boot from USB) 

Or should I buy a new box (android TV box, on something else) which one under 50$ that il well supported by armbian
