RockPro64 doesn't boot when PCIe to M.2 adapter is installed
#1
I see the green LED near the power plug and green LED on the adapter. After pressing the power button, I see some chromatic distortion on the display for about a second then nothing else. The white LED does not light up. After removing the adapter, I am able to boot up as expected. I am trying to boot from the SD card. My understanding is that the SD card would have a higher than NVMe for boot if I had flashed the SPI (to allow for NVMe booting), but I haven't flashed the SPI.

I removed my data SSD from my desktop and it boots as expected. The SSD that prevented booting is a SK Hynix PC300. I am not used to a computer being so picky. I've been using the SSD without problems for a year or two. Now I need to find a compatible SSD because I am using this one for my Ethereum blockchain.

It is not picky, the ROCKPro 64 does not support M2 drives, only NVMe.
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Arch (6.2 kernel, Openbox desktop) for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone Pro Explorer Edition, daily driver, rk2aw & U-boot on SPI, Arch/SXMO & Arch/phosh on eMMC
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb, Tow-boot with Arch/SXMO on eMMC

The PC300 is NVMe: https://www.amazon.com/SK-Hynix-256GB-So...B075QMZ1LC
