Hi William,

I couldn't find anything in the uEnv.txt having uname. I am attaching the 
uEnv.txt file here again for reference. 

The BBB currently has a flashed Ubuntu image from : 
And I am trying to flash it with a Debian image from : 

I am not sure about the Ubuntu one, but I think the one below is definitely 
official, as it was mentioned on the BBB official site itself : 

Also interesting was that of the contents of /boot you mentioned, I went 
into the Ext4 partition of the uSD card and into /boot and found only one 
directory called "uboot" with No files inside. The directory was empty. 

But when I checked the FAT16 partition of the uSD, I found some of the 
files you mentioned, which I was supposed to find in /boot           (red 
colored files are the ones I couldn't find)

SOC.sh                        config-4.4.14-ti-r34      
initrd.img-4.4.14-ti-r34      uboot
System.map-4.4.14-ti-r34      config-4.4.14-ti-rt-r34   
initrd.img-4.4.14-ti-rt-r34   vmlinuz-4.4.14-ti-r34
System.map-4.4.14-ti-rt-r34   config-4.4.8-ti-r22       
initrd.img-4.4.8-ti-r22       vmlinuz-4.4.14-ti-rt-r34
System.map-4.4.8-ti-r22       config-4.4.9-bone-rt-r10  
initrd.img-4.4.9-bone-rt-r10  vmlinuz-4.4.8-ti-r22
System.map-4.4.9-bone-rt-r10  dtbs                      uEnv.txt                

I found these additional files and directories which you haven't mentioned :
App           (directory)
debug         (directory)
Docs          (directory)
Drivers       (directory)
scripts       (directory)

I am using Win32 Disk Imager to transfer the contents of the .img file to 
the SD card. 
I used 'DiskInternals Linux Reader' to access the contents of the SD card's 
Linux Partition.

Inside the 'dtbs' folder, I found the following :

I am surprised that your directory and file structure and mine are 
completely different. 
Am I doing something wrong here ?
