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.

Important Note

DO NOT FORCE UEFI INSTALLATION. If you do, you won't be able to proceed with the installation and won't be able to install the boot-loader either.

Do not use Unetbootin or any other image creator. You'll need a linux machine, a memory-stick and the good old console. Simply just 'cp debian.iso /dev/yourdevicename' (mine was /dev/sde and then type 'sync' and hit enter. It takes a long time to write the iso to the stick. Make sure usb-strick isn't mounted and DO NOT USE A PARTITION ON THE STICK BUT THE WHOLE DEVICE. For example, /dev/sde is the device whilst /dev/sde1 would be a partition on the device.
