I'm just going to try the USB solution first just to make sudr the uboot is ok.

I presume that building the usb is exactly the same as the HDD version except it is on the usb?

Ok..... Finally some good news.
I have created a usb boot and it has booted, it has an ip address and I can ssh into it.

What do I need to do now??

Hi dannyp,

How did you create your usb? When I tried it, it didn't find the uInitrd file.

@dannyp See my last post on the last page on creating HMBR. Try different things and report back what works and what not
@Daniel boot up linux live cd, create an ext2/3 partition on USB drive, label it "rootfs", extract archlinuxarm tarball as root ("sudo su" then "tar xvzf <path to arch tar.gz> <path to the usb partition>") to it.

We actually suggest sudo su, then tar. (don't as why, it just doesn't always work as just sudo.)

@Daniel, I did it exactly as moonman has indicated in the last post.

@moonman, I don't need the usb now. I can now ssh into a booted drive woohoo.

I installed gdisk then ran it. both partitions where type 0700 but the usb was 8300 so i used option 't' to change both partitions type code to 8300.

Then used option r for recovery and h for hybrid.

I put both partitions in the sequence, at 'Place EFI GPT partition first question I answered no. I used hex code 83 for both partitions giving the first the bootable flag and then answered no to the protect more patitions question. Then m for main menu and w to write.

Removed the usb and did reboot and the light flashed then went solid. ssh into the drive ok.

Thanks for the tip WarheadsSE, fixed my post

Great, it boots up. Now check if the partitions are recognized at their full size.Run "df -h"

Or if you want automounting to work
Label that 2.7 TB partition and install the udev-automount
Code: Select all
tune2fs -L <partition name> /dev/sda2
pacman -S udev-automount

reboot, then do df -h

after reboot you should be able to access the partition through /media/<partition name>
