Hi

 

I'm wanting to try using a SATA hard drive with my SabreSD board.

 

In the reference manual I can see how to set the dip switches to boot from a SATA device, but there is no mention of how to configure uboot to work with a SATA drive. The source code for uboot has no mention of SATA.

 

Is it possible to build uboot to run from a SATA device, and then boot Linux from the SATA drive? Where can I find some instructions for how to do this?

 

I have search for other posts, but the relate to boards with i.MX5x chips and the instructions appear to be no use to what I'm trying to acheive.

 

Kind regards

 

Andrew
