thank you both for your help.
My partition resize to create a separated home partition must have
broken something in the process.
Indeed, I dd'ed the image on the hard disk and immediately after I
booted the cubox-i.
It was sufficient to launch the following commands:
setenv boot_targets sata0
And it booted from eSATA just fine.
Thank you again.

It should work ok by dd'ing the raw image to the hard disk. I used that on a
Beglebone Black with internal emmc a while ago.
Maybe the boot_targets value in u-boot would need to be updated to re-order the boot
list, if you want to boot from sata first and and just use mmc as a fallback?
I'm not sure about the details, but I have a similar setup (openSUSE Leap 15.0,
cubox-i, and not e-sata but USB disk as a root partition), and /boot has to be on
mmc that way, too.
Perhaps you can use the same trick (mount the mmc as /boot), to work around
this problem, at least then you don't have to copy around the kernel / initrd after
