Confused, you've bought one to try out, but cannot be bothered to plug in an SD card and actually use it? Or have you tried it but for reasons that elude many, cannot continue to try it out without USB boot? Surely the best approach is to run with SD card until USB boot is available? What specifically is it about running from an SD card is it that stopping you continuing to try it out? After all, running from SD is what the vast majority of users do with no problems whatsoever.
It's quite simple really, I'm looking for a suitable ARM based computer to take over from Intel/AMD for my regular computing tasks, & it needs to work how I work with 'standard' computers, booting from internal HDD/SSD, & external HDD/SSD or pendrives. I can't be doing with the hassle of those micro SD cards, that is why USB booting is so necessary.
You are welcome to continue using micro SD cards, but they are not for me, nor for many others it would seem, it is as simple as that.
Oh, & I need EDID to be read properly, so that I just plug everything in & use it.
Until that happens, it just isn't suitable, & I certainly couldn't recommend it to others.
