Does anyone have experience installing Debian on a Minnowboard Turbot?
I have a dual-core, single ethernet, Turbot. I’m able to install Debian (Buster) from a physical DVD, but when I dd the installer .iso to a USB stick, and try to install from the stick, the Turbot’s firmware doesn’t see the stick as a bootable medium.
If I install (using the physical DVD in a USB connected DVD drive) to a USB stick, that USB stick (the one I installed to) will boot fine. So it’s not that it just can’t boot from a USB stick.
The documentation isn’t entirely clear, but I *think* the Turbot’s boot firmware is UEFI-only. Would that make a difference?
It seems odd that the exact same bits should be seen as bootable when presented on a DVD, but not when presented on a USB stick…
Thanks for any help!
