Hi grace.s36533,

Flash on SATA HDD steps:

Format the sata HDD partition:
   $ sudo mkfs.ext4 /dev/sd<port><device_number>
Mount the sata HDD
cd to your rootfs (/Linux_for_Tegra/rootfs)
   $ sudo tar -cpf - * | (cd /mnt/ ; sudo tar -xpf -)
   $ sudo umount /mnt
Plug-in sata device to sata port
Put device into recovery mode and flash using sda1 
   --> sudo ./flash jetson-tx2 sda1
