Did you find any information to do this ? I bought a rock 64 board with a emmc module (and the usb adapter)from Pine64 online shop. I can't boot on emmc (on a sd card, no problem).

I don't know if it's a hardware or software issue.

I think it's possible, because the DietPi presentation of the Rock 64 speaks about emmc transfer performance... but I don't know how to do this.

Any help is welcome !

Saw this

Something about interrupting the boot...then copying a minimal image to the emmc

Particularly this post ... 1#pid30511

It will install xenial minimal and kernel for arm

Someone mentioned before then to run a script to make a minimal install into a DIetPi install
Here is the repository for all the Rock64 builds

I built a useable image onto emmc via the usb adapter by using win32diskimager rather than Etcher.
