Try with the latest image: ftp://staging.olimex.com/Allwinner_Images/a64-olinuxino/linux/1.latest_images/bionic/images/

After the initial account creation run the nand-sata-install script as root.

Thanks, for your reply. I've tried to boot this image from sd, but it doesn't work correctly. Often when i create initial accout, board doesn't work and my monitor doens't recognize any signals from HDMI. Sometimes it boot without problem, but cpu overheats and then board reboot itself.
