Recommended Posts

Hi all


I hava an orange pi 5 plus with a 512GO NVME SSD. I have installed the latest version od Armbian to a SD card it work well,  but for speed reason i would like to install the OS to th SSD drive and boot from this device and no longer from the SD card. Is there a way to do this ? i mean from u-boot point of view?  i can keep a SD card inside it to store u boot but i would like to move usr var and such to SSD


Thanks in advance for your answers comment or ideas

Make sure to 

- write SPI during the mentioned armbian-install process

- that /boot directory has been populated on the NVMe. If not mount and copy files from sd manually there.
