i've just recieved a A10 olinuxino lime board, so i would make some questions:
1) can i use a simple 5v(like android charger packs)micro USB power supply to power the board?
2) the hdmi image output would start as soon as the boot finished? (after installing with win32 disk imager the OS on the class 10 microsd)
3)hardware acceleration is already working in the DEBIAN image made for the LIME?
4) the sata port of the board can power an HDD without external power supply?
thanks for answering

Should be possible if power supply provides more than 0.5 A at 5V.

Yes, if disk is 2.5" (3.5" require additional 12V line). You can connect the disk to the board with those 2 cables: https://www.olimex.com/Products/Components/Cables/SATA-CABLE-SET/. Board + HDD(SSD) will need more power - 2A 5V as a minimum requirement for the power supply for stable work (IMHO).

Since there is no manual at the moment you can read the wiki page for more info: https://www.olimex.com/wiki/A10-OLinuXino-LIME
