Ok, the bpi-m2u should "just work" with the images from 7.7, in fact 
those images have the sata patches backported from 4.20 into 4.19.
Steps are just what is outlined in the wiki

Once you have that bpi working, and you're familiar with the steps, it 
would help a lot getting that rock64 to work, even with non-standard 
Once it works that way, we can move on to standard things.
I can't help much more than that, because I don't have (yet) any aarch64 
socs (ok, I have rpi3b and rpi4b, but assigned to other things).

P.S.: Don't worry about asking things that you may think are noob 
questions, those are needed to learn ;-)
