I don't think the problem is with the Pine64 installer.  I also don't think this problem applies when you have Ubuntu installed on the eMMC.

I edited the extlinux.conf on the boot partition of the microsd and changed  "root=PARTUUID=deedbeef-02" to the device holding the root partition on the microsd "root=/dev/mmcblk0p2".  After that it booted.

According to someone on Discord, he needed to "edit the extlinux.conf to correct the partition UUID's" to get it to work.

Yes, this has been confirmed in this thread:

I intend test this out tomorrow.

This worked for me but what steps can I take to re-image my machine so I don't need to boot from the SD all the time?

I put a copy of the image on a usb flash drive, booted the SD and then dd'd the image from the usb drive to the eMMC .  But just to be safe, after the dd finished, I mounted the boot partition on the eMMC and edited the extlinux.conf there to replace "root=PARTUUID=deedbeef-02" with the device holding the root partition on the eMMC "root=/dev/mmcblk1p2".

I messed up my default Debian distribution (don't try to update to Sid) and had the same problem described above running the image on SD, but when I wrote the image directly to MMC using dd it worked.

I've used both Etcher and dd with the same results.

I have the same problem. I can't seem to boot. I've tried two SD cards now. After imaging the card with `dd`, inserting it into the PBP and hitting the power button, I get the "Open Sesame" splash screen. Then it black screens and hangs. If I try and boot it a second time from the same card the PBP just black screens.

Hi,

Thanks for your help. It worked, the wrong partuuid was specified in the config file. Sorted it now.

Kind regards,

Ben

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but how exactly do you mount the boot partition on the emmc and edit it from there? 

Sorry I'm a noob and just want to be able to get back to default if I mess up. 
I flashed the image to the emmc but it won't boot without the SD card in now. I think it's because that extlinux. Conf file isn't edited right after I flashed it. I could use the gui to edit the boot in the SD, but can't use the gui to edit the emmc. How does one do this?

Edit: I figured it out with mount and nano. Thanks.
