The sketch is not saved on the Galileo board by default. To "enable persistent /sketch folder,” please refer to the "Booting your board from an SD card" section (section 11) in the Intel® Galileo Getting Started.

Hi Grumpy_Mike, the 53 seconds wait is because Linux is booting up- the arduino sketch runs as a userspace program on top of linux.
Yes, it means that the board is not ready immediately, but it also means you can access a linux prompt and use the board as an ordinary linux box while your sketch is running in the background.
Dear All and Grumpy_Mike,
I 'm trying to enable persistent sketch on Galileo Board, following the instruction... unfortunatelly without result.
Environment: I'm running the IDE on windows 7. My micro SD card is 1 GB.
What I did: meta-clanton.zip on SD and unzipped it. SD in the socket and power-on the board.
1) How can I realize that the boot from SD is finished and the board is ready?
2) How can I upload the sketch in the /sketch dyrectory ?
I understand that you succeded in booting from SD, can you kindly give me some more detailed info than the info I found in the official documentation ?
Thanks for your help.
