Re: Installing Debian on a Minnowboard Turbot with installer on USB stick?




Thanks!  Yes, that confirmed what I had mostly already found by experimentation.

What it didn’t explain was why the same .iso (specifically, firmware-buster-DI-alpha2-amd64-DVD-1.iso) when I burn it to a DVD-R and load the disk into a DVD drive that is plugged into the USB slot on the Turbot, will boot into the installer just fine… But when I dd that same .iso onto a USB stick, then plug the stick into the USB slot on the Turbot, will not be recognized as a bootable medium.

I’m puzzled…  Have you tried to boot the installer from a USB stick on a Turbot?  Or did you always use a physical DVD drive?  What’s the difference between them that causes one to boot and the other to be ignored?
