We have our own custom board that is a slim down version of the Jetson TX1 DevKit board. If we use TX1, it sees the SATA controller and kernel log shows “ata1: SATA link up 3.0 Gbps (SStatus 123 SControl 300)”. In Ubutun, we can then use parted and mkfs.ntfs on /dev/sda. If you we use TX2, we get “ata1: SATA link down (SStatus 0 SControl 300)” and there is no sign of /dev/sda when executing “fdisk -l”.
BTW, both TX1 and TX2 get “SATA link up” on the Jetson TX1/TX2 DevKit boards and parted/mkfs.ntfs see /dev/sda.
Has anyone run into this issue or can anyone give us a clue why the TX2 has this SATA issue?
