Won't boot with SATA card
#1
I'm trying to set up the Pine64 NAS. Here's what I've done:

* Installed Armbian Focal 20.04 on to the eMMC module, using Pine64 5A adapter.
* System worked fine, installed software. No problems.
* Installed the SATA card from Pine64, no hard drives yet. lspci shows the card.
* Installed 2 Seagate Iron Wolf HDD
* Booted the system, and it sees /dev/sda and /dev/sdb.
* Installed mdadm, created a new partition /dev/md0 based on /dev/sda and /dev/sdb.
* Formatted /dev/md0 with XFS.
* No problems yet.
* Tried to copy a large movie file to the /dev/md0 partition, got an I/O error. Didn't save the error unfortunately, but looking back at my search history shows the line "md: super_written gets error=10"
* I install the latest Armbian, Focal 20.08.9, Linux kernel:
uname -a
Linux rockpro64 5.8.13-rockchip64 #20.08.8 SMP PREEMPT Mon Oct 5 15:59:02 CEST 2020 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux
* I saw a few posts about the hard drives drawing too much power, so I purchased a 10A adapter from Amazon.
* Booted the RockPro64 with the new 10A adapter: Nothing. No lights, no fan.
* Booted the RockPro64 with the original Pine64 5A adapter: Nothing. No lights, no fan.
* Removed the SATA card.
* Booted the RockPro64 with the new 10A adapter: Boots fine, I can SSH in, all seems good.
* Powered off, connected SATA card with hard drives disconnected.
* Booted again with 10A adapter: Nothing, no lights, no fan.

Any thoughts? Did the SATA adapter somehow die? I've seen a few posts about using a Marvell SATA adapter, but I don't want to keep buying extra things as replacement for the items which should have worked.
I'm confident that these items work fine:
* Hard drives
* RockPro64 board
* 10A adapter

I have my doubts about the SATA adapter.

How should I proceed? The only thing that looks like a version marking on the SATA card is: SU-SATA3-T2 Ver. 005.

Update: I bought a new SATA adapter, plugged it in, and everything seemed to work. However, trying to actually use the partition caused a panic.

I rebuilt the RAID-1 virtual drive, reformatted at EXT4. Then trying to mount the new partition, I get this: (md127 was what I think the kernel automatically detected after I deleted the mdadm file and removed the partition info from fstab).

I'll reboot, since maybe that's needed for the kernel to recognise the md127 -> md0. I also opted for EXT4 this time, maybe that's easier on the Kernel. Who knows. I'm running out of options.

I reinstalled Armbian Focal 20.08 (server this time, previously used the desktop image), and everything went well. I forgot to mention that I'm using mdadm to create a RAID 1 partition using these instructions: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/t...untu-16-04

Everything seems to go well, installing mdadm, rebooting, creating the array, formatting it as EXT4. But after a few minutes of letting it sit, the crash comes back with the same code at the bottom.

I had the Pine64 NAS working for a week with the 2x HDD's working as a stripped RAID array. I did a software update "apt-get dist-upgrade" and has this at reboot:

Any thoughts? I know I'm just yelling into the void here, but is there something I'm doing wrong?

Well, I would not rule out that this is rather a kernel issue as it happened after the upgrade. Do you have the possibility to test with the previous kernel as well?
