Unable to boot / OP PC Plus

Recommended Posts

According to the specs of the OP PC Plus, it only supports 32GB micro SD. My only 32GB that I have, that I was booting from on the OP PC plus eventually got corrupted, and will not boot, can't format and install armbian or anything. What are my options? Can I somehow boot from a 64GB micro sdcard, or USB from a fresh armbian image write?

I mainly use 64GB for testings because they are fast to write an image too.

... were written long time ago by the hw or which is even worse, marketing people. Then they ware copy / pasted a few times. In the mean time SD cards with 512Gb - 1Tb in size become something one can buy. Focus on this: https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Getting-Started/

Your only SD card could also simply be broken or you are facing this problem: 

which is possible to diagnose with a serial console.

After pulling my hair out, it looks as though the sd card slot on my OP+  is bad. I've tried writing armbian, to multiple micro sd cards (including a new 32GB I just bought), and either doesn't boot, or armbian boots partially, and gets partially booted, and errors with read/write error.

 

I managed to boot via USB with Armbian,  and tried to run nand-sata-install to install to emmc, but it errors that it can only be run from sd card. Is there any way to run nand-sata-install from usb to install to emmc?

I have been able to install, and boot the OP+ with a 16GB USB storage. For it to boot though, I have to have a sdcard inserted (I'm guessing I could use something other then a card to trick the OP), before it fails to boot from sdcard, and then moves onto the next boot sequence (usb storage). I've tried writing armbian to multiple cards, using a pin to try to realign it, and other tips, and it just refuses to boot from microsd.

 

I've resolved the fact that I may need to just usb for the time being. Based on that information,  is there ANY script out there that will write from usb to EMMC? The original nand script I removed the "if booting from usb halt install" code, and that still did not work to write directly from usb. If I could write the finalized armbian OS from the usb to emmc I think I could solve this issue. Any ideas?
