We have installed a system on a Jetson Orin Nano on USB using sdkmanager. We have had several problems:
We have only been able to install it on a 256 GB flash drive although the operating system occupies much less. When we tried to install it on several 64 GB pendrives the process failed and gave us the following error message:
Error: Invalid argument during seek for read on /dev/sda
[ 9]: l4t_flash_from_kernel: Error: partprobe failed. This indicates that:
the xml indicates the gpt is larger than the device storage
the xml might be invalid
the device might have a problem.
Please make correction.
The installed system is extremely slow to boot and use.
These problems do not occur when we install the system on a 64 GB microSD.
We need help to solve these problems, because we want to be able to boot using flash drives.
I was using USB drives formatted with the ext4 format.
I have manually changed the value in the file “flash_l4t_external.xml” and it worked. Would it be possible to do this automatically when using the installation scripts?
Is it normal that the Jetson Orin Nano takes more than 40 seconds to boot when the older and slower Jetson Nano only takes around 25 seconds?
Is it due to the hardware, the booting process, the kernel version?
Is it possible to simplify the booting process and reduce the booting time?
