 external media (SATA hard disk, USB stick or (u)SD card) using  external media (SATA hard disk, USB stick or (u)SD card) using
 [[!template id=man name="sysinst" section="8"]].  [[!template id=man name="sysinst" section="8"]].
   
   As practical example a BananaPI and a SATA hard disk will be used.
   However, the following instructions can be probably easily applied
   on other SoCs and medias with little adjustments.
   
   
 # Populating (u)SD card with `armv7.img`  # Populating (u)SD card with `armv7.img`
   
 *TODOleot*: (mostly) copy-paste instructions from allwinner.mdwn  - Download or build `armv7.img`, e.g.:
   
   [[!template id=programlisting text="""
   $ ftp http://cdn.NetBSD.org/pub/NetBSD/NetBSD-8.0/evbarm-earmv7hf/binary/gzimg/armv7.img.gz
   $ gunzip armv7.img.gz
   """]]
   
   - Write the image to (u)SD card:
   
   [[!template id=programlisting text="""
   # dd if=armv7.img of=/dev/rsd0d bs=1m conv=sync
   """]]
   
   - Write u-boot to (u)SD card. `u-boot` images are provided by
   `sysutils/u-boot-<boardname>` packages, for example for Allwinner SoC:
   
   [[!template id=programlisting text="""
   # dd if=/usr/pkg/share/u-boot/&lt;boardname&gt;/u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/rld0d bs=1k seek=8 conv=sync
   """]]
   
 *TODOleot*: Adjust/provide u-boot incantantions to boot on a BPI  NetBSD/evbarm 8.0 does not automatically boot on the BananaPI.
   We can use the following commands to boot from the (u)SD cards in u-boot:
   
   [[!template id=programlisting text="""
   mmc dev 0
   setenv kernel netbsd-BPI.ub
   fatload mmc 0:1 82000000 $kernel
   bootm 82000000 root=ld0a console=fb
   """]]
   
   Or, to avoid typing them at every boot we can prepare an u-boot script via
   [[!template id=man name="mkubootimage" section="1"]].
   
   [[!template id=programlisting text="""
   $ cat boot.cmd
   mmc dev 0
   setenv kernel netbsd-BPI.ub
   fatload mmc 0:1 82000000 $kernel
   bootm 82000000 root=ld0a console=fb
   $ mkubootimage -A arm -n armv7 -T script boot.cmd boot.scr
   """]]
   
   ...and copy it on the populated (u)SD card:
   
   [[!template id=programlisting text="""
   # mount /dev/sd0e /mnt
   # cp /mnt/boot.scr /mnt/boot.scr.orig
   # cp boot.scr /mnt/
