Glad to be able to help.

Note that when you install the pciex1 SATA controller the first hard drive connected to it will be /dev/sda so you will have to remember to change the U-Boot variable to point to the correct Linux partition.

Having the X5000 for just a few days, and with no knowledge of U-Boot, i managed to get Ubuntu up and running.
So Spectre660, and everyone else who contributes to getting Linux up and running on the AmigaOne X series... great work!!

For now i detached the X5000 Optical drive, and attached a 1TB 7200rpm disk and installed Ubuntu on this.
Next steps planned:
re-attach cd Optical drive
insert a Pci-E X1 Sata controller and attach a SSD drive
Install Ubuntu again.
Getting rid of the permanent USB key and move the kernel to the X5000 SD card... (the hard part)

And the second step has been completed.... (thanks again for your instructions Spectre660)

The X5000 has the kernel files now on the U-Boot SDcard and it booting from this. I even managed to make a copy of the original SD card and all is running from a copy right now.
The original U-Boot SD is safe in case of emergency!
