I'm glad you found the use of the genivi-development-platform easier due
to the recursive submodule approach.

I've been working with the minnowboard for the last couple of days, and
the build generated by the minnowboard branch is working on my end.
However I have had to rerun disk on a couple of occasions to
recreate the boot media, has it offered you the option to go into
maintenance mode? (I think with control-D). If not, it could be an issue
with the UEFI firmware version. I've also found power cycling by holding
the power button down for ~5 seconds to be helpful

I hope you find success,

All the best,
