Hello,

it's been some days i am trying to boot a system from an SD Card to a CubieTruck 128 SSD Metal edition without result. I can only boot to some new systems via LiveSuit (running Debian Testing) and FEL Mode.

Any tip to make this SD Card boot happen ?

Philippe

Solution found: on the Cubietruck SSD Metal edition, you need to insert a microSD card, not a regular SD card, the right slot is named TF. Inserting an SD card in an USB slot via a card reader is not working. Make sure to lock the microSD card. It is not obvious since the metal case make it very difficult to lock it.
