SATA not working

Recommended Posts


Today I updated my BananaPI M1 board, replaced the Bananian OS with Armbian  Armbian_20.05.4_Bananapi_focal_current_5.4.45.img. I'm not getting the SATA with connected 1TB WD10JFCX working. The HD worked before with the Bananien kernel 3.4.x 

What can I do, how can I test, how can i get more information about the reason?

The board is powered via the Micro USB and armbianmonitor reports  DC-IN voltage > 5V

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

I read on the forum:

"Update boot loader to latest version - armbian-config -> system -> install/update boot loader ... and try again." and I did.

I also removed power, reconnected the cables, and now the result is different: I have now the device /dev/sda available.

Hopefully, all is good now.
