Stability issues, some specific code on the EMMC? Whiping EMMC helped
Hi, we have had issues with 2 fresh UP Squared boards from Mouser.
When we got them we upgraded the bios to the newest version but trying to install Debian or Ubuntu or even Windows 10 resulted in cpu errors and very unstable behaviour.
On one board we had some initial locks, reboots but after managing to install Debian 10 it actually works with bios 4.6 installed.
The other board we send back because we thought it had HW faults and we ordered a new one some weeks ago. This one had the same problem. However, strange thing was that after I used the Windows 10 installer and wiped the whole EMMC disk and removed all partitions it seemed Windows 10 updated/changed the UEFI code because after a reboot the boot logo changed.
After that i decided to give Debian another try (i never wanted Win10, just tried it to see if that would work) and I could install Debian without any cpu locks or reboots and the system has been running for a month without any problems.
So is there some code/bootloader running on default that could get faulty or something like that? Also, you seem to support only a few Linux distributions and specific kernels but why is that? Shouldnt it work (and in my case after whiping and removing all partitions it does) with any Linux distro/kernel?
Also, could this explain the other stability issues that have been reported online?
