There is no mmcblk0....There is mmcblk1 and mmcblk2, one of which is the SD card. And then there are also the choice's for the mmcblk0p1 and mmcblk0p2, which are the wrong choices.
But even if I select the non-SD card choice and hit enter, it takes me to the next page which says "no image available" and a command line prompt......
Maybe I should try XFCE version...?
I'm concerned about bricking the computer....Many Thanks for your time...:-)

mmcblk0 was just an example. the numbering of emmc and sd aren't universal across different OSes for the PBP. One OS could show it as mmcblk1, and another will show it as mmcblk0. determine which mmcblk is the drive you want to write to, and then write your downloaded .img to it. If you're writing to your emmc, be sure to download and use a live .img (you wouldn't want to write manjaro's emmc flash img to you emmc.)
Yes, I understand....Guess I thought the emmc img would guide me through writing the new image to the PBP emmc. Maybe I'm not understanding as well as I'd like to think :-)
Which brings me to whether I'm competent enough to write a live img to the PBP emmc.....One problem at a time....:-)
Many Thanks!! :-)
