Hi
I bought an olimex A20 Lime 2 server ( https://www.olimex.com/Products/OLinuXino/Home-Server/LIME2-SERVER-NO-HDD/open-source-hardware ) in order to replace my VPS and to test home hosting
I read I need to burn a 'start' image (I've choiced a yunohost image) on the SD card to install the Linux system on the SSD Disk
My question: once the installation is done, is the SD card necessary to reboot the server or can it be removed?
Thx ;)

I can't say about yunohost, but if you used our Olimage image and ran our hard disk install script - yes. You can then remove the card and boot from the SSD (technically the boot partition would be on the SPI memory).

Archives with Olimages images can be found here:

~#olinuxino-sd-to-sata - allows booting from the SATA disk; transfers the Linux file system from the card to external SATA disk; boot is placed in SPI flash memory.

Where I can find hard disk install script?

The script is in all Olimage images:
