I've managed to make everything work, so far.
Still w/o GUI and doing everything via CLI, the last thing I need to do is mount the external SSD (via the SATA port).
When doing a mount -a (as root) I get this:
# mount -a
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sda1,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error
In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
dmesg | tail or so.
Any idea what to do about this?
I have given up, for now, on the SATA port.
I plugged the SSD into a USB port and now everything works.
I suspect there is something wrong with the board that mess up the SATA port? Unless someone can lead me in the right direction on how to make it work - in a not too cumbersome way?
Just too bad, as I've bought 4 M3s that I wanted to run with SSDs to SATA for good R/W speed, but now I'm only able to use the USB port.
