It's not running anything with the GPIO's, it's all software related stuff like NAS server with samba.

Hi,

The Pine64 is a different architecture than something like an Raspberry Pi.  @janjwerneroints out that there is a way to copy the rootfs over, I think that is more hassle than it is worth because problems might be hard to diagnose unless you really understand Linux internals.  

In general, I think that you would be better served to start over.  I have done this in the past and the good news is that basic things like config files can be reused.  In my experience the best way to do this is to run the two systems in parallel while you get the Pine fully operational.  (This always gives you the opportunity to compare and/or copy over config files.)  Once the Pine is ready then you can switch over. I would further add that I use the same process when migrating between RPis since I typically migrate between different generations. (e.g. I last went from a Pi B to a Pi 2)

My $.02.
