Can we please get an update or note on the “Booting Turris Omnia from mSATA SSD” docs page under “Preparation of SSD”, step 5 where it says “partition table
GPT is recommended”.
The eMMC on my kickstarter-era Omnia has finally died, so I have converted over to boot directly from the mSATA drive. I was broadly following the guide steps which was working fine, but I could not get the Omnia to boot directly from the mSATA at all.
It kept stalling at “Waiting for root device PARTUUID=<uuid>” - which was using the uuid of the mSATA, but it never progressed. On a hunch, I reverted the partition type with fdisk in a rescue shell to regular type 83 (Linux) and wrote that back out to the disk and it immediately booted.
This page is labelled as for the Omnia 2019+, but I wasn’t sure if that was referring to the the older uboot versions (I have 2022.10) or a hardware variation between the older and newer Omnia’s, but it would help to be documented.
