General Discussion / CubieTruck Plus boot from SATA hard drive
« on: November 20, 2017, 02:26:19 am »

Hey guys,

I've got a CubieTruck Plus (Cubieboard v5) currently booting from EMMC with Linaro Ubuntu 14.04. Everything is fine but I was wondering if I can make it boot from the SATA hard drive. It would be nice to have all the space.

I have noticed that the board does not boot if I put an empty micro SD in. It also does not boot when I connect the SATA hard drive. I would have been happy if it booted just fine with an empty drive plugged in. I could mount it and store all my data or move my home directory there. But it is just not booting.

So, I thought, since it is not booting at all, maybe connecting any drive (micro SD or SATA HD) makes the boot process ignore the EMMC and look for bootloaders on the drives instead.

I have seen that it is possible to burn the linaro image to SD card so that it boots the OS from there instead of EMMC. Is it possible to do the same thing with the SATA hard drive? Can I just clone the micro SD Linaro to the SATA hard drive and boot from there?
