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

1. Before attempting to install Stretch go to BIOS and set graphics mode to "Discrete".

2. It is important to note that when attempting to install Debian Stretch on NVMe SSD 256 Gb the installation will proceed successfully, however bootloader will not be installed correctly. The solution is to install on another disk and use NVMe SSD as a data drive.
