helios64: m.2 Sata Storage isn't visable when booting U-Boot

Recommended Posts

Hi together,

iam realy desperate and hope someone can help me with my problem.

I think something crashed while I disconnected the USB-Cable in U-Boot Mode with helios64.

Now Iam not able to see my m.2 SATA SSD in U-Boot Mode as USB Storage in my PC. I use the U-Boot mode from a SD-Card with a boot image.

When I start some armbian System from SD-Card the m.2 SSD is visible and ready to use.

I dont know what kind of logs do you need for my Problem. Sorry for that. :-(

The only thing I want to do is to use my SATA m.2 SSD as armbian system drive with OpenMediaVault again. 

best regards sommer11

we all have a different use or experience of our Helios64,

the support you requested is finished since Kobol unplugged.


in my use this version of uboot allows me from usb-c to access the EMMC memory of Helios64 from a computer.

as explain here https://wiki.kobol.io/helios64/install/emmc/#step-1-download-u-boot-only-image-and-an-helios64-image-build


Kobol does not mention any use to access M.2 Sata from this image and i doubt this image can do it, unfortunately I have not have M.2 to do try this.



setenv usb_to_soc 'echo switch USB MUX to SoC; gpio set B13; sleep 0.2; gpio set B4; sleep 0.2; gpio clear B13;'
setenv blink_status 'led helios64::status clear; sleep 0.5; led helios64::status set; sleep 0.5; led helios64::status clear; sleep 0.5;led helios64::status set;'

run usb_to_soc
run blink_status
ums 0 mmc 0

# Recompile with:
# mkimage -C none -A arm -T script -d /boot/boot.cmd /boot/boot.scr



Could you describe your use so that those who have a similar use can better help you

and those who discover can follow in your footsteps.
