I'm compiling with 4.3.3 config (will post after it finishes), if it doesn't help, this may be kernel related and it's better to ask for help in linux-sunxi google group.

This also failed. I am not sure what this means at this point. Over to you guys.

 

Thanks

If you donate for a board I am going to get one but the main problem is time. It's hard to get Banana PRO in local store ... If I order, it would take up to one week, whole next week I am out of office ... 

 

http://www.pollin.de/shop/dt/MjE2NzkyOTk-/Bausaetze_Module/Entwicklerboards/Banana_Pi/Banana_Pro_Dual_Core_1_GB_DDR3_SATA_G_LAN_WLAN.html

From here I got stuff in 3-4days.

 

We need to solve this problem in less than two weeks :)

 

I also count that this is not a single incident and people will come forward with the exact same problem or without a problem with same hardware combination.

Another option is i post my board to you tomorrow and you should get it within a few days?

 

I have 2. One is in use as a NAS/PLEX/VIRTUALMIN - works superbly with armbian!:)

 

The other is a developemnt/test board (how i spotted the problem with the upgrade to 5.00) This board would not be missed as my NAS is working fine atm.

Works on cubietruck too. There are some commits that may be responsible for this (especially since /proc/interrupts lacks SATA entry), but this needs a) confirming that it is 100% kernel related (installing only linux-image and linux-dtb on top of 4.5 image) and then using git bisect to find commit that broke it.

I tested SATA with kernel 4.4.1 on: Banana M1, M1plus, Cubieboard 1 ... can't reproduce.

 

Hmm, can you swap board with your live system? ;) I'll change topic to attract testers.

I Will swap it out but am running bananananian at the moment and its working fine.

 

Eating food now. BBS with swap out results.

Can I help with that?

Yes, with the first part. Grab Armbian 4.5 image from mirror.igorpecovnik.com and manually install 5.00 linux-image and linux-dtb packages (don't update u-boot, board supoort package or anything else) and check if this breaks SATA..

Okay, am just tidying some other things up. Will get onto that later. I will be away until wednesday so will get what i can done tonight.

Got the same problem here, first i thought my fault was to install 4.4.1 kernel first and got a non-booting system (system on sata ssd). I tried copying kernel files back (4.1.0rc6 as i used before) but couldn't get system to boot. Btw, after some fiddling at boot partition sytem now boots again with 4.1.0rc6 kernel. I tested armbian 5.0 image on a fresh sd card, system booted but sata ssd not present.

If someone builds a new kernel image i can safely test that safely on my fresh installed second sd card and report here.

I think I have the same issue on a Banana pi (non pro). Last weekend I started building my 'Banana-Pi-openmediavault' server from scratch with V5. In openmediavault I'm unable to mount the attached sata drive. When mounting OMV returns the following error: 

 

Failed to mount '*ID*': mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so

 

I've tried formatting the HDD to ext3 and ext4, both to no avail.

Try lsblk, if your drive is present its definitively other problem...
