Thank you. Worked beautifully. And so simple!

    I have tried this procedure but my Beaglebone Black (BBB) does not boot from the microSD, just from the on-board eMMC. I have limited experience with Linux-based systems and so i am sure I am doing, or not, something simple. I am using a rev A5C BBB with a 4GB FAT32 micrSD. Any pointers will be gratefully received.

      I'm having the same issue as jgainsborough.

      I formatted a 4GB SDHC as FAT32, extracted the zip to it, inserted into powered-off BBB, held down USER/BOOT applied power, and waited. Never saw any lights other than the power light. Have tried many times, holding down USER/BOOT for as long as 30 seconds.

      Have tried with USB and with power supply. Same behavior. Board boots runs fine from internal memory.

        The page neglects to mention that the partition on the SD must be marked active in order to be booted from when you hold down the USER/BOOT button.
