I need to flash this uboot to the sd card?

No, you should only need the u-boot on the eMMC. I think I misread your last post about flashing Chromium. the SoC looks at the eMMC u-boot, which then redirects to SD or NVMe.

Here's what I've done:  I installed Manjaro on the eMMC.  Then followed the instructions in the OP to boot from the nVME.  Now I am booting from the NVME, but am not able to get any SD card to boot.  I tried to boot Chromium and Debian builds that I know worked when I had Debian on the eMMC.  I have also tried to start fresh on the SD card by flashing a new Chromium and followed the instructions to delete the uboot on the SD, but I have not had any luck booting from the SD.  Any suggestions on what might be next to try would be appreciated.


On the Root-a (ChromiumOS) /boot/ it contains "/dtbs/" "/extlinux/" "boot.scr" "bootloader.bin" and "vmlinuz-4.4.190-g66800f3032c5"

the boot partition of my NVME contains: "/dtbs/" "boot.scr" "boot.scrpacnew" "boot.txt" "Boot.txtpacnew" "idbloader.img" "image" "image.gz" initramfs-linux.img" "mkscr" and "u-boot.itb"

Is something missing in the /boot/ folder of the ChromiumOS?

No, but you might want to try grabbing the u-boot files straight from pcm720's github. (It's linked on the main PBP wiki page, look under using NVMe as OS drive.) IIRC pcm720's original version had NVMe as the first boot priority. The current one has SD as first.

Ok...I can do that.  That would involve following the instructions in the original post, correct?  Also, if the boot order is the problem, when an SD card is inserted wouldn't the Manjaro image on my nvme be recognized and booted into?  I'm getting a blank screen.
