Mount SD card as extra partition

Post by zlotyGagatek » Sat Oct 12, 2019 8:14 am

Hi Guys,
I have got an problem on my Acer Spin 1. I is very specific laptop. Thank to this solution
https://dantalion.nl/en/installing-ubun ... i-devices/
I was finally able to install mint cinnamon here.
My problem is that "SSD" internal laptop disc is visible as SD card. It is only 64 GB so I bought 128GB microSD card. The card reader is build in this laptop just for cases like this.
I have problem with mounting this card. Basically, after reboot, card reader can't see this card. I have to pull card out and put in every time after reboot.
lsblk after reboot:

Code: Select all

NAME         MAJ:MIN RM  SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
mmcblk1      179:0    0 58,2G  0 disk 
├─mmcblk1p1  179:1    0  512M  0 part /boot/efi
└─mmcblk1p2  179:2    0 57,8G  0 part /
mmcblk1boot0 179:8    0    4M  1 disk 
mmcblk1boot1 179:16   0    4M  1 disk 
lsblk after out/in sd card:

Code: Select all

NAME         MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
mmcblk1      179:0    0  58,2G  0 disk 
├─mmcblk1p1  179:1    0   512M  0 part /boot/efi
└─mmcblk1p2  179:2    0  57,8G  0 part /
mmcblk1boot0 179:8    0     4M  1 disk 
mmcblk1boot1 179:16   0     4M  1 disk 
mmcblk0      179:24   0 115,3G  0 disk 
└─mmcblk0p1  179:25   0 115,3G  0 part 
I have selected "Automatically mount removeable media when inserted on startup" in "FIle Management Preferences"
Any ideas how to mount this card permanently? Thanks :)

First of all enter your BIOS settings and make sure that you can not solve this by disabling some "fast" or "quick" boot setting, nor through a power management option somewhere.

There is no options for fast/quick boot in bios, only secure boot which is disabled (due to issues with installing mint at all). There is no option for that in power management neither.

And echo -n 1 | sudo tee /sys/bus/pci/rescan probably does not work to have your card show up after boot? You'd preferably point complete system specs and/or a link to manufacturer documentation if not.
