Thank you for your response.

I found the 'debian-8.7.1-amd64-DVD-1.iso' image here:
<http://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current/amd64/iso-dvd/>, burned it to
SD card in a USB reader with Rufus <https://rufus.akeo.ie/>, and booted it
from USB on the Udoo X86 Advanced hardware (Intel quad-core Celeron N3160
2.24 GHz & Intel® Quark SE core 32 MHz plus 32-bit ARC core 32 MHz, Intel HD
Graphics 400 Up to 640 MHz 12 execution units, 4 GB DDR3L Dual Channel RAM
and 32GB eMMC Storage).  

I selected the GUI Install from the menu, and all proceeded remarkably fast
and smooth without a hitch (except the WiFi, but gigabit Ethernet enabled
downloading all required additional files) until the last when it came to
grub.  

The installer advised that it had detected another OS being installed, and
presented me with a few choices to which I wasn't sure of the correct one,
so I took the default.  That must have been wrong, as now Debian won't boot
with grub from the eMMC "Hard Drive."  I'm not at all familiar with grub.

I can boot into recovery mode though, and from the command line it appears
the install was successful.  So I'm close, but don't know exactly how to
proceed to make it bootable.

Any clues sincerely appreciated.
