I’m trying since two weeks to get the EspressoBin running using a Windows 10 machine.
I’ve bought a version without a SD card, which I presume is where the trouble begins.
Simply downloading an image (buildroot or Ubuntu) from the Tech Spec page and then writing it onto an SD card using Win32DiskImager seems to not work. When I insert this card in the EspressoBin and try to boot it up (using putty on Windows), I get the error that the file system is bad.
After looking into this (and other) forums, I suspect that the reason for the problem can be a missing kernel that has to be installed on the SD card as well on an alternative partition for U-Boot to work and boot up properly.
As far as I understand it there are now two possible approaches:
a: write an SD in a way that U-Boot detects everything and it just starts up
b: modify U-Boot in a way that the SD card is detected
While any solution would be highly appreciated, I would prefer to go with option a, so I’m able to play around with different SD cards.
