    Hello, I have been trying for the past 2-3 days to boot my udoo board through ssd. But the udoo board has stopped detecting my ssd. When i run the "sata part" command i get an error which says "AHCI 0000.0000 1 slots 1 ports ? Gbps 0x0 impl SATA mode flags = ** No port Device detected**" but when i boot via sdcard i see the SSD filesystem mounted under "/media" directory. please let me know what i'm doing wrong. I am using the kingston ssdnow 300 120gb disk.

    To make it boot from sata you use the uboot env variables :-

    setenv sataroot "/dev/sda1"
    setenv satadev 0
    setenv satapart 1
    setenv loaduimagesata 'ext2load sata ${satadev}:${satapart} ${loadaddr} ${uimage}'
    setenv sataargs 'setenv bootargs console=${console},${baudrate} root=${sataroot} ${hdmi_patch} fbmem=24M video=mxcfb0:dev=hdmi,1920x1080M@60,bpp=32'
    setenv sataboot 'echo Booting from sata ...; run sataargs ; bootm'
    setenv bootcmd 'sata dev ${satadev}; run loaduimagesata; run sataboot;'
    saveenv
    reset

    Try add this line by line into uboot.

    But it`s the "setenv bootcmd 'sata dev ${satadev}; run loaduimagesata; run sataboot;'" which make it boot , the rest are just set up variables , so leave this out until to want it to boot from the sata drive.

    Yes i have tried the above mentioned method before. Infact all my environmental variables have been setup just as you have illustrated. The problem is that uboot is unable to recognize sata device. Now it says "loaduimage" not defined and "sataboot" not defined.

    I may be wrong shouldn`t this be :-

    loaduimagesata=ext2load sata ${satadev}:${satapart} ${loadaddr} ${uimage}

    Because I would say the $ part is very important which say use the env variable satapart not the string satapart

    Yes you are right. I changed the error but the result is still the same. Even when i boot from my sdcard, i stop the autoboot process from the serial console and check if uboot is recognizing my ssd. But this is what i get

    yes you are right. I was working with an older version of u-boot, switched to the 2013 version now and everything works perfectly. Thank you so much for your help :)
