new pinebook help
#1
So I just got a pinebook. Not even sure which model it's the first version (non pro) 11.6" 1080 screen. Is this known as the pinebook or pinebook 1080? 

Anyway. It has android installed to the emmc. I followed some forum advice and got the pine 64 installer tool to try to flash a distro to SD then to Emmc.  The installer tool kept giving me errors.

So I downloaded kde neon from the pine 64 neon and selected the image in the installer tool. Flashed to SD card fine booted up. I was looking for on screen instructions to pop up, but only thing I saw was a shortcut titled "run this first time".  It basically set language, timezones, etc.

And I popped out the SD card and still booting android from emmc.  I never saw any on screen instructions can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Is there another way to flash this os from my SD card to the emmc? I've searched quite a bit and keep seeing that the installer tool is the go to, but for some reason it's not working out

Thanks for any help you can give me

Sorry for being a new haha
