Re: Alpha not bootable from m.2 (SATA) or USB3 - BIOS issues

I am sad to say I was too enthusiastic about the success.

The alpha boots now, and the boot devices are recognized each boot with a proper power adapter.

But it does not run stable. Random, sporadic freezes. I think this was a bad buy. Its really a shame!

Re: Alpha not bootable from m.2 (SATA) or USB3 - BIOS issues

Tadaa, I solved it! The Alpha seems to rely on better power than from the shipped USB-C adapter. I built a cable from a 12V 4A power brick to the connectors of the Alpha and now it is booting into Ubuntu! I keep you updated, if it works a second time, because I am writing this now on the first boot ...

Re: Alpha not bootable from m.2 (SATA) or USB3 - BIOS issues

Hi, I am trying to get a pre-formatted m.2 (SATA) SSD running, that I already used in another system. Its ubuntu 18.10. I updated the grub via boot-repair over a second USB stick on another PC. UEFI partition is present and the m.2 SSD is working on two other computers, either directly on the m.2 sl...

Is this the official place where we get help normally? I am feeling lost and left alone tbh.

Alpha not bootable from m.2 (SATA) or USB3 - BIOS issues

I might need a BIOS update for the Alpha. This is a big issue, because the whole device is not usable in the state I got it in! I have trouble booting over an SSD, connected over USB3 or directly used over the m.2 slot (SATA). I also have trouble recognizing the m.2 (SATA) SSD to work as boot device...

Re: Where is Lattepanda alpha resource ?

I might need a BIOS update for the Alpha. I have trouble booting over an SSD, connected over USB3. Sometimes the USB adapter is recognized in the BIOS, but most times it is not. When recognized, Ubuntu will not start. It does work (from the machine I am writing) from an AMD 2400g machine. So I guess...
