Initial boot failure
(03-02-2021, 07:08 PM)bvansteen Wrote: Hello,
I received my Mobian PinePhone today!
I powered it on, received the Mobian icon, entered a 5-digit PIN, and selected 'disable' for disk encryption.
I then received:
"Installation Failed
Configuration Error
No partitions are define
to use.
I have not installed a microSD yet; is that the problem?
