I created an SD card image for the Olinuxino Lime 2 eMMC from Debian stable installer version. I used the firmware for Lime 2 eMMC and put u-boot compiled as indicated by

Then, I ran the installer and chose to install on eMMC. I can boot it by putting the micro SD card in and removing it when u-boot started and before the debian installer is started from the micro SD card, then it boots fine, I can ssh to it.

However, I haven't found out how to install u-boot on the eMMC, so that I don't need to use the micro SD card. I tried the instructions at but then it still won't boot without the micro SD card.

What is the way to copy u-boot to the eMMC so that it will boot without the micro SD card?
