To write u-boot to the sd card you need to first install either the binary package or the u-boot port on your card. Use the search to find u-boot and then install it:

This is an example for the Allwinner SoC

dd if=/usr/pkg/share/u-boot/u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin/u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/rld0d bs=1k seek=8 conv=sync

All done! Now you can insert the SD card into your computer and boot the system with no default root password. To transfer the system to the eMMC internal memory use the guide above or use the sysinst utility.
