This is my bad, sorry. I thought I recalled seeing danielt mention the script could be modified to install the default Debian. Upon further review of the thread, I think I was wrong. The easiest way will probably be for you to just download the Debain image in that install, and then dd it to your emmc.

no worries, and sorry to bother you with this. I am unfamiliar with dd. I have identified the internal emmc with gparted. I downloaded the OS again while booted from the SD, I have extracted the img file to the dowload folder. Am I correct in using the following? Or do I have to point to the download folder and then point at the image?
Code:
sudo dd if=my_OS_image.img of=/dev/my_emmc_location bs=4M status=progress

No worries, better to ask questions when you don't know the answers.

Yup! Fill in those blanks, and you'll be on your way to Debian back on your emmc.
