Boot from MicroSD
New owner here, received my Pinebook yesterday, I wanted to try some of the other OS options but can not seem to get anything to boot from the MicroSD slot.  I have tried Android 7, Xenial and Q4OS.  I have written them to the MicroSD card with Etcher, and with the Pine64 version of Etcher, I have used 3 different MicroSD cards, 32g or less, one is a high speed card, nothing seems to work.  I power the unit on, the green power light comes on, the screen stays black, nothing ever loads. If I take the MicroSD card out the unit boots fine to the pre-installed OS.  What am I doing wrong?
