A 1 TB NVMe SSD is not getting recognised with a fresh install of Diet Pi on RADXA’s Rockpi4c

Required Information

# cat /boot/dietpi/.version
G_DIETPI_VERSION_CORE=8
G_DIETPI_VERSION_SUB=7
G_DIETPI_VERSION_RC=1
G_GITBRANCH=‘master’
G_GITOWNER=‘MichaIng’
G_LIVE_PATCH_STATUS[0]=‘not applicable’

# echo $G_DISTRO_NAME $G_RASPBIAN
bullseye

# uname -a
Linux rockpi4c 5.15.52-rockchip64 #22.05.4 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jul 4 09:40:29 CEST 2022 aarch64 GNU/Linux

# echo $G_HW_MODEL_NAME
ROCK Pi 4 (aarch64)

1 TB NVMe SSD is connected with this Extension board ( ROCK PI 4x - M.2 Extension board v1.6 – ALLNET China )

The 1TB NVMe that is currently being used : ( https://tinyurl.com/ye4ajhzd )

  • SD card used | 32GB SanDisk

Additional Information (if applicable)

  • Docker, Docker Compose, Portainer installed

  • Was the software title installed freshly or updated/migrated?

Freshly installed

  • Can this issue be replicated on a fresh installation of DietPi?

Yes

# echo $G_HW_UUID
2d6a31be-550a-45e7-b335-9d7533776c8b

Steps to reproduce

  1. Install DietPi for Rockpi4c
  2. run command ‘lsblk’
  3. Currently only the 32GB SanDisk is being listed. The 1TB NVMe disk is not listed.

# lsblk
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
mmcblk0 179:0 0 29.7G 0 disk
└─mmcblk0p1 179:1 0 29.7G 0 part /

Expected behaviour

  1. Hope the 1TB NVMe SSD can be identified and mounted successfully so that the unit can be used for Storage/NAS

Actual behaviour

  • Only the 32GB SD is identified. Not the 1TB NVMe SSD disk

It sounds very similar to this post: RockPi4C, Acer M.2 NVMe not detected w/ Extension board v1.6 - ROCK 4 Series - Radxa Forum

Apparently more force was needed to establish a well-seated connection than the person was expecting to have to use.
