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

Before attempting to boot, several changes need to be made to the BIOS settings. Press the delete key when the MSI splash screen appears after turing on to enter the BIOS menu. The following changes should be made:

1)

{X} Both the ethernet and wifi do not work out of the box on a fresh Jessie install, as the drivers/firmware are not available. So there is no way to update and upgrade to the testing (Stretch) distribution or download needed firmware unless the user has an alternative means of connection. To get around the lack of working internet connection on the stock hardware a usb-to-ethernet adapter was used. The model was a J5-create JUE130 USB 3.0 to ethernet adapter, it is automatically recognized and loaded as an ASIX AX88179 device.
