Odrive goes into DRV_Fault - metadata not loaded

Does the firmware version 0.5.5 require both axes to respond on SPI before booting? if so can you point me in the right direction of disabling this? Please help. I made a board with the reference design of the Odrive but only with a single axis.

This issue was fixed by rectifying the hardware. It turns out the Power ground and digital ground were isolated which led to the DRV8301 chip not having enough power or any power to turn on.

Once the Power Ground plane and digital ground plane were shorted, the DRV started communicating appropriately.
