    I was thinking I would install FreeNAS (which is FreeBSD based). I will let you know if I get it working or not.

    I created a FreeBSD 12.1 bootable USB stick and booted from it successfully, and started a live CD on my UDOO Bolt. It ran just fine, so I have every reason to believe that installing it would be fine too.

    Dearest jorgy,
    I also created a usb stick with FreeBSD-12.1-RELEASE-amd64-memstick.img and also with FreeBSD-12.1-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso but unfortunately the boot stopped and the computer went into freeze.
    Thanks for yor reply

    Usually the culprit is the boot-time eMMC support (assuming OS is installed there as the system drive.)
    Find a patch would be the workaround, if that is the issue and if such patch exists.

    Dearest jorgy,
    Really I was unable to complete the boot even with the SATA disk. However, I will try again as soon as I have free time.
    Best regards

    Dearest ccs_hello,
    If you were able to install FreeBSD in the EMMC I would be happy because now I have installed Manjaro in the M2 Nvme, Debian in the M2 Transcend and Ubuntu in the SATA then only the EMMC remains free where I currently have a second Ubuntu installation.
    Thank you very much

    Stupid me, FreeBSD uses its own kernel so you will have to check if the AMD eMMC driver is implemented.
