Hi,
My config: A20-OLinuXino-LIME2 - HDD SATA3 HGST Travelstar 5K1000 2.5" - Image Debian jessie 3.19.0-rc5-lime2 from igorpecovnik 

I have some problems with the SATA disk power. Over 99% of the time everything is okay but sometimes the drive clicks and makes a bad noise and it is no longer possible to read/write to disk. If I reboot at that time the disk clicks and does not start. On the web, I found that it was a power problem (not enough) so I tried to place an external 5V 1A power directly to the disk, but when I turn on the board, nothing append, the disk does not spin up. What am i doing wrong?
Thanks for help
Yvan

There has been no more hdd crash since the installation (>3 months) of   armbian_4.5_Lime2_Debian_jessie_4.2.3 from igorpecovnik.
