Comments on SD/MMC format for OMAP3 boot

I needed to make a FAT16 partition to make it boot, FAT32 simply does not boot...

And change its type to FAT16: Command (m for help): t Selected partition 1 Hex code (type L to list codes): e Changed system type of partition 1 to e (W95 FAT16 (LBA))

mkfs.vfat -F 16 /dev/sdb1 : FAT16 partition instead works fine

For other linux hosts (like Ubuntu and Slackware) use #mkdosfs -F 16 /dev/sdb1 to format your patition. Thanks Pratheesh for the tip about using FAT16

Also seems card dependent. For my 256MB card option e worked (W95 FAT16 (LBA)) per Pratheesh's comment. It did not work for a 2GB card. Option 6 (FAT16) had to be selected for that to boot. In no cases did FAT32 work with an OMAP EVM board. FAT32 works fine on a beagle board. Frustrating that the documentation is wrong on this.

After too much time spent seeking the magic incantation for different cards, this OpenEmbedded script was found to be reliable:
