Firstly, sorry if this isn't where I should post this, I'm a first time poster. Just let me know and I'll move it.

I''m trying to use an SD of the Debian Desktop Community Build Image [microSD to eMMC] (which is the same OS as my pinebook pro laptop) to install a new OS over the OS on my pinebook. I have been able to access gb whatsapp live boot on the SD card, but don't know where to go from here. I have installed other linux distros over other OSs in the past using bootable USBs before, but the procedure for this seems to be different. None of the normal prompts are appearing.

So far I've updated and upgraded. At this point, I'm not sure whether the changes I've made are applying only to the SD card or to the actual hard drive, I suspect just the SD card.

Any help with installing an OS to the actual laptop is appreciated!
Do I need a a separate device to make it work? what do I do? I have installed debian desktop for pbp onto an sd card but it doesn't have any install options.

I think you don't need to implement this on a separate device if you already having this issue, but you can change your sd card if you were unable to solve the issue and install debian.
[*]Choose the OS you want to install and download its SD card image from the official website. Insert an SD card into your computer and format it to the appropriate file system (e.g. FAT32). Use an image writer tool such as BalenaEtcher, Win32DiskImager, or dd command to write the OS image to the SD card. Make sure to select the correct drive and double-check the image file and settings before starting the writing process. Once the image writing process is complete, safely eject the SD card and insert it into the Pinebook.g b whatsapp download
