So I’ve tried unsuccessfully to get the image transferred from the SD card onto the onboard eMMC but I’m hitting a brick wall. As the title says, I’m using a FriendlyArm NanoPi R1 device and it’s working well from the SD card.
Things I’ve tried so far
- Resize the SD card partition to match the onboard eMMC partition size then use DD to flash that image to the eMMC - SD still boots when inserted but system does not boot after removing SD card
- Copy SD image to root of SD card then use DD to flash image to eMMC - Again, SD card boots fine but does not boot after removal of SD card.
I can see that the onboard eMMC drive is listed as /dev/mmcblk2 and is partitioned with 3 partitions - first is marked as boot and size 124M, formatted ast Fat32. Second is an empty 512B partition and third is a 1.2G Linux filesystem so I know that the DD command is working.
Any pointers on making this work?
