Hi folks. I've been using raspbian on Raspberry Pi model B with a powered USB dock for a year.|
My Banana Pi arrived this week. I setup the Raspbian 3 image on SD card. I proceeded to build a SATA USB hard drive like I did for my Raspberry Pi following the changes here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=351659#p351659
I've run into the same problem discussed in this thread. When I set up to boot off the SD card to then boot root off the USB, I get stuck waiting for root device. It gives a USB error -110 several times until finally it ends up booting up SD card. Once the system is booted, the USB partitions are mounted, but the root is off the SD card.
There must be something wrong with the startup. Right after it says populating /dev, you get these USB -110 errors . I've tried two different hard drives (2.5") and two different USB SATA enclosures. All I can mount and view on the Banana Pi when booted off SD, but won't boot off / on USB. The Raspberry Pi boots off the hard drive applying the same workaround.
I don't have a proper SATA cable for the Banana Pi, so I'm not able to test using SATA.
