I don't see any mention of utilite models in upstream u-boot, so it's
not possible to provide pre-built bootable debian-installer images.
If you have a vendor-provided u-boot, you might be able to get it to
work with the debian-installer images, possibly manually loading the
kernel+initrd+dtb from the u-boot prompt and booting. You'll likely need
a serial console connected to troubleshoot.
Curious if I am overlooking a U-Boot option/parameter/command for
From the vendor-provided U-Boot prompt, I could not load initrd.gz into
memory without first wrapping with mkimage. After debian installation,
I found the same case when configuring U-Boot to use bootcmd. I ended
up wrapping initrd.img-4.9.0-4-armmp. I suspect his will be a problem
when updating kernel. Aptitude already shows a security update
available for kernel/image.
The debian-installer appears to have worked correctly with Utilite Pro.
The installed state had an issue with a usb device constantly
resetting. Not sure if hardware issue or debian installation. Could not
get U-Boot to recognize usb storage. Using device without usb, so
turned it off.
