In reply to Juan Gonzales:
I don't follow those instructions yet because i don't know where do I type those instructions: on the Host PC or on the Terminal of the Target?
If it's on the terminal of the target, i will not be able to type those command because the card no longer contains a kernel (the flash was erased by a colleague). so the card cannot boot. So can you give me an other solution?
In reply to Jean FAYE:
These instructions are meant to be dome from a Linux machine.
Alternatively, if you don't have a Linux computer or would rather use Windows, you can use the HP USB disk storage format tool. Follow the instructions here http://wiki.davincidsp.com/index.php/AM35x_EVM_Boot_from_SD/MMC_card.

Thank you for you help I solve that problem but now i have an other.
When I try to set the mmcboot environment variable as follows it doesn't work:
OMAP3EVM# setenv mmcboot 'mmcinit; fatload mmc 0 0x82000000 uImage; fatload mmc 0 0x83600000 ramdisk.gz; bootm 0x82000000'OMAP3EVM# saveenv
when I type ENTER the result is :
Saving Environment to NAND...Erasing Nand...Erasing at 0x260000 -- 100% complete.Writing to Nand... done
OMAP3EVM# run mmcboot
the result is:
reading uImage** Unable to read "uImage" from mmc 0:1 **
. I think that it's because the adress i used are not correct. Can you tell me how can I find the correct adress?
Thank you in advance
