Are you trying to boot from the front SD or the internal microSD?

Can you post the boot.scr from the internal SSD?

What size, format & partition layout is the SD card you are using?

Looking at the boot.scr posted above it appears to be missing the init mmc 0 command - can you post the complete output from uboot?

The last link I gave Jeff
Code:
cat trimslice-sdcard-boot.scr
B`»ÂTrim Slice MM Bootsetenv bootargs 'root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rw rootwait console=tty1 console=ttyS0,115200n8 mem=384M@0M mem=512M@512M nvmem=128M@384M vmalloc=248M nohdparm noinitrd init=/sbin/init rootwait loglevel=8 video=tegrafb'
ext2load mmc 0:1 4080000 /boot/uImage
bootm 4080000

I think he is picking up another boot.scr?
No mmcinit but it works
Yes, we need to know which sd card, and partition layout with fs types
That boot.scr will work even with an untouched install on ssd, and goes in / or /boot, I haven't tried on later uBoot though

That last screenshot is using this boot.scr

I am trying to boot from an SD card. It is an EXT3 file system all in one partition at the start of the SD card... Nothing complicated.

Jeff, is there any way you can try on an ext2 formatted card?
Or
there is 2 ways of formatting ext3, direct or create ext2 and add journal, I have had better results formatting ext2 first, maybe i'm talking out my rear end

When I was initially trying to boot of external hd, I had this, spent days on it

I'll give an EXT2 card a go later today and report back.

You can always add the journal later
Another option is to have a small ext2, rest as ext4, and I belive there is some good tuning options that make things even faster
Then you would obviously need a changed boot.scr
Good luck
Maybe you should switch to arch ;)

If I simply wanted to use this as a PC I might, but my hope had been to use it as a development system for Debian ARM stuff - which I have running on 4 other ARM devices I own already.

It seems really strange that my image didn't work for you.

I'm going to create a complete image of my 4GB SD card for you. This time it will be complete with the partition table and the partition will not have been resized. Therefore you should end up with an absolutely identical setup to mine.

The SD card that I used is a Sony SF-4N4. (I have no idea if this is important, or whether other 4GB cards are smaller)
