Hello,

 

I try to re-install my olimex lime 1, but I'm unable to boot from the current buster image.

For now, here's what I do to flash the sd card:

% wget -c "https://dl.armbian.com/lime/Buster_current"
% mv Buster_current Armbian_20.02.1_Lime_buster_current_5.4.20.7z
% 7z x Armbian_20.02.1_Lime_buster_current_5.4.20.7z
% sudo sh -c "dd if=Armbian_20.02.1_Lime_buster_current_5.4.20.img of=/dev/sdc bs=1M"

 

And I come up with a result like this:

% sudo sfdisk -d /dev/sdc
label: dos
label-id: 0xd9b237ef
device: /dev/sdc
unit: sectors

/dev/sdc1 : start=        8192, size=     2318336, type=83

 

Is this empty space before the first partition normal or am I missing something?

It is essential to read what you write when using SD cards.

Yes, its normal. There is a place for boot loader.


Edit: Bionic version works for me.

Thank's for the reactivity. I use this :

sudo sh -c "cat Armbian_20.02.1_Lime_buster_current_5.4.20.img | pv | dd of=/dev/sdc bs=1M"

and it works better now :-)

at the beginning, I used "dd" without "cat" because it is indicated in the file "Armbian_20.02.1_Lime_buster_current_5.4.20.img.txt" as one of the 4 methods to prepare the SD card.

 

Thanks again!
