I have finally succeeded in booting my shiny new BPI-M64 and would like to get the boot process under control.
I read a lot but for me as a newbie it is very difficult to identify whether information found is general or only related to a specific build/image or if it maybe is no longer as described.
I’m currently using 2017-08-13-debian-8-jessie-mate-desktop-preview-aarch64-bpi-m64-sd-emmc and I found the inird.img as well as the kernel (Image) in bananapi\bpi-m64\linux of the dos partition.
So there has to be “something” that loads the kernel. My main quesestion would be where that is located: some where in hardware or on the SD card (may be in boot sector)? And did I understand the postings right, that this piece of SW is a kind of older U-Boot?
Thanks for any help in advance!
