My Armbian does not see my Ssd

Armbianmonitor:

Hello,

 

Since a week I try moving the OS on the sdcard to an attached SSD.

OS: Armbian 5.65 Ubuntu Xenial 3.4.113 desktop

Because the BPIM1 has a genuime SATA interface it should work.

I have found dozens of tutorials how to do this. Until now I did not find any tutorial that works.

Of course I started with nand-install expecting this would work out of the box.

But after the install and rebooting I got the notification that it couldn't find the ssd.

I guess I have to change something in the bootloader on the sdcard?

(I am not a Linux expert but an enthustiastic Linux user)

Is there any working tutorial including the final steps?

 

Kind regards,

André Reinink

 

From the Armbian docs:

On Allwinner devices after switching to boot from NAND or eMMC clearing the boot loader signature on the SD card is recommended:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/mmcblkN bs=1024 seek=8 count=1 (replace /dev/mmcblkN with the correct device node – in case you run this directly after nand-sata-install without a reboot in between then it’s /dev/mmcblk0).

I did add this extra step after the nand-install.

After executing this and restarting, the BPIM2 doesn't boot anymore?

What did I do wrong?

 

10FEB2019:

After 7th attempts I changed the SSD (Intel 180GB) for an OCZ 120GB).
Attempt number 8 with the OCZ was succesfull with nand-sata-install. No problems at all. I am happy:-)

Armbian can't help. Power your board properly.

It is powered directly from the motherboard socket, any other specific operating system works perfectly no longer this armbian does not work.
What are you advising me?

Another possible scenario is that u-boot is messed up. Checking right now ...

Double checked, there is nothing wrong on our side. Get proper PSU and connect it properly, not on OTG port and it must work.

I tested that SO too and I do not see my ssd.

I installed OMV 4 Banana Pi Pro and everything is ok "sees" my ssd,but after the whole system moves to ssd, they can not do anything from the administration interface.

My project is the following:
I want to install OMV on a 500Gb ssd, and on microsd just boot.

That's not a problem, but the mystery is why you can't see SSD with Armbian but I can. Even a mechanical drive.
