Armbian Buster/Bionic: No Sata device detected

Hi all,

after successful install of Armbian Buster (Armbian_20.02.5_Bananapi_buster_current_5.4.26.img) on my Bananian M1/2?? (has MicroSD) all seems to be good…

All updates are there, but: The hard disk i connected to the board via Sata, with additional 5V power cable is not detected, dmesg|grep -i sata says:

“ahci-sunxi 1c18000.sata: PHY power up failed.”

Curious, because changing the Micro SD card to old raspbian os shows all devices, including the SATA parts. Power is given by original 2.5A supply.

Anything wrong with the images? Same problem on Armbian Bionic…

Thanks Bommel

Attached this way:

SATA is powered, measured 5V at the connector. (since my drive is connected directly to PSU)

So you think there is not enough power?? Even there is no device attached?
