How to prepare SATA disk for booting

Dear All,  My board arrived today and it seem to be functional.  I have a SATA disk which I'd like to use instead of the microSD. So far it works in as much as I can see /dev/sda, and I've found docs describing what soldering I have to do to make the system boot from it. What I have not yet found is any info about what I have to put on the disk to make it bootable. Presumably it requires a particular partitioning scheme with u-boot in the right place, etc. Can anyone point me to appropriate docs, or tell me what I have to do?  Thanks, Phil.
