Getting a virgin BBB to boot first time

I have now taken delivery of my cut-down version of the BBB, it is essentially the same as the BBB with the HDMI IC (U11) not fitted and with the eMMC IC not fitted (U13).

I’m now at the stage of configuring/getting the board to boot for the first time.

I wish to boot from the SD card.

How do I go about this without eMMC IC present? Will the system operate without eMMC IC fitted?

Might I suggest that you register so your posts go through sooner?

I suggest read the System Reference Manual. Yes you can remove the eMMC and boot from SD providing you did not mess up the boot pins…
