How to boot from the SD card and install to eMMC?
#1
Hi, wanting to try another OS (the new Manjaro) I downloaded the emmc installler image and flashed it to a 16GB SanDisk microSD with the PINE64 INSTALLER utility.

However, my Pinebook Pro refuses to boot from the SD card as long as the internal eMMC drive is swithced on. After switching it off with the little toggle under the hood, I can boot from SD card but then... How to install to the internal drive?

Can anyone point me to some clear instructions either on the wiki or these forums? For a noob it's completely confusing...

Thanks! Smile
