u_boot - select device

Postby johnc32779 » Fri Jan 31, 2014 7:10 pm

Is it possible to modify the Ubuntu boot up mechanism to allow the user an opportunity to select the device containing the desired OS image? My thought was perhaps the u_boot on the SD card could be changed so as to offer booting from either the SD card or an SATA disk, and thus eliminate the need to modify the Wandboard.

I like that idea,
Or perhaps multi-boot like Grub.
Select:
Main SD card
Aux SD card
SATA

I read that u-boot can show some menu on TV over HDMI. Then real multiboot can be done?
