What is on the Micro SC card that came with the board?
#1
I opened th Micro SD card that was delivered with the Pine64 board
and saw the following list of files on the card.


Volume in drive Q is BOOT

 Volume Serial Number is 424A-49A2
 
 Directory of Q:\
 
05/07/2016  19:22    <DIR>          pine64
05/07/2016  19:22         1,076,704 initrd.img
02/11/2016  16:28               137 uEnv.txt
11/03/2016  15:46                 0 list_Q.text
               3 File(s)      1,076,841 bytes
               1 Dir(s)      39,806,976 bytes free


What are these files?
Why is the SC Card called BOOT?
If I download an image of Linux from Pine64.com to install it
on the SD card, must I first delete those files and format the SD Card?

no,  just dd copy the image ( unzipped of course ) or use the Etcher program:

stay away from phoenix card
stay away from win32diskimager
