My question was more to find out what microSD cards I could use for installing the new OS. Plus I have two older BBBs with only 2Gb which is decidedly tight so using a microSD card instead would provide more space so I can use them as backup systems. Is there any difference in speed between eMMC and microSD (though presumably SD cards vary in speed)? Presumably one can remove /boot from the eMMC card and thus force booting from the microSD. -- Chris Green · -- For more options, visit http://beagleboard.org/discuss --- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "BeagleBoard" group.
