#2335 closed enhancement (fixed)

Boot sequence

Description

The current boot sequence appears to be SD - USB - NAND. Wouldn't USB - SD - NAND be more sensible? That way an USB flash drive could override an SD card that is used as "permanent" extension of the internal NAND.

  • Milestone changed from Untriaged to Trial-3

Ah, but USB enumeration is slow, where you can check ST almost instantly.

  • Component changed from ofw - open firmware to documentation
  • Owner changed from wmb@… to bert

Fixed by svn 494. The boot order is now USB, SD, NAND, USB reprobe (in case USB was skipped due to fastboot), wired Ethernet, wireless LAN. I.e. the first two are switched from before.

I don't think that this change will break any manufacturing processes. The time-to-boot issue noted by jg's comment above will be handled by delayed USB probing in the unattended boot case.

I am reassigning this bug to bert to hunt down and fix any documentation (on the wiki and perhaps in other places like commentary in installation script) that mentions the old order, and also to inform Quanta of the new boot order and deal with any complaints that they might have.

Huh? Are you trying to discourage people from mentioning enhancements? Sorry pal, my plate us full.
