Juno is intended as a hardware as well as software development platform and thus has way more knobs than you need, and a convoluted boot procedure. This page just gives you the minimum info needed to install Debian.

== Installation ==

=== Preparation ===

You need:
 * Serial connection to juno. Use upper of two serial ports (actual 9-pin serial!) on the back. (So normally via a USB-serial adaptor appearing as /dev/ttyUSB0. Conect at 115200: e.g. {{{screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200}}})

Modern firmware helps. Good documentation on updating firmware here: https://community.arm.com/docs/DOC-10804

You need EUFI installed on the juno for it to boot Debin-installer.

The recommended install is from USB stick, but installing from CDROM or over the network should also be possible (not tested).

Prepare your USB stick with:
{{{
wget http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/stretch_di_alpha8/arm64/iso-cd/debian-stretch-DI-alpha8-arm64-netinst.iso
}}}
use {{{lsblk}}} or {{{dmesg}}} to find out what device your card is. Lets say it's /dev/sdd (ignore partitions - we are copying this to the bare device - the format contains partitioning info. Your device needs to be at least 400MB)

{{{
sudo dd if=debian-stretch-DI-alpha8-arm64-netinst.iso of=/dev/sdd bs=4M oflag=sync status=noxfer
}}}

 * Put USB stick in back of machine (where reset buttons are). Front USB ports don't work

 * Power up juno.

If everything is just so it will find efi partition and boot into installer.

This didn't work for me. You may end up at EUFI

Look for 'USB' and 'CDROM'. So in this case FS2 is probably our debian-installer USB stick.

This will run the installer. However you won't see console output after first few lines

DebianOn is an effort to document how to install, configure and use Debian on some specific hardware. Therefore potential buyers would know if that hardware is supported and owners would know how get the best out of that hardware.

The purpose is not to duplicate the Debian Official Documentation, but to document how to install Debian on some specific hardware.

If you need help to get Debian running on your hardware, please have a look at our user support channels where you may find specific channels (mailing list, IRC channel) dedicated to certain types of hardware.
