I’ve been with rock960 in my hands for several days now. And after testing and testing, I have come to the conclusion that it is only feasible to work with the debian under emmc, since if we install it from a micro sd, the speed decreases considerably. And I wonder, since the memory of the rock960 is limited with only 16GB. There would be some possibility of being able to install both debian and ubuntu from an SSD drive or from the MPCIE port that carries the board.
The raspbian operating system can be installed to a ssd using noobs, from usb2.0.
In the Rock960 we have a usb3.0 port and an mpcie, I think we only have to vary the bootloader boot to port usb3.0 or mpcie.
Because you do not create an installer that lets install the operating system in an SSD, I think it would be beneficial for all users of the Rock960. The speed increases a lot with an SSD, and that makes you win a lot
