I have just received a Sabre Lite board and trying to boot from the SSD drive (SATA connection).

I managed to mount the SSD drive when running a LTIB image, when booting up from the SD card (use the image provided from (


Then I formatted the SSD in ext3 format (in Ubunut).

mkfs.ext3 -L ltib /dev/sdb

after that I mounted the disk and got /media/ltib

Then I unpacked the LTIB image into the SSD drive:

sudo tar zxvf ltib4-no-x-20130618.tar -C /media/ltib/


But when I boot up my SABRE Lite card (without the SD card) it seems like it is trying to boot from the SSD, but I get following messages:

It seem like it doesn't like the partitioning on the SSD.

Do I need to create the bootable image on the SSD drive in a different way?
