Re: SolydX-EE installer doesn't detect partition table

I've read somewhere that you have to exclude these from the list:
mmcblk0boot0, mmcblk0boot1, mmcblk0rpmb

So, I changed that in the updated live installer: http://repository.solydxk.nl/pool/testi ... staller-3/
but I doubt it'll make any difference.

I've also read that these mmcblk0 devices are from a bootable SD, am I correct?
If so, is there a way I can create/get one to debug this issue with?

This is the notebook: http://store.hp.com/SpainStore/Merch/Pr ... BE&sel=NTB

It hasn't hard-disk, only a 32 Gb eMMC. So the live system has de eMMC, where I have created a ext4 partition and the usb memory with live SolydX.

I have a previous model where I installed SolydX without problems: https://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=5501 but I ignore if the eMMC is exactly the same.

I'm not at home now, but when I return I'll try the new version of installer

Thanks

The guy of your link installed linux in other model of HP Stream

Maybe other possibility is ignore de eMMc in instalation, and install SolydX in a usb pendrive, using the usb port doesn't used by live SolydX. Then I could copy the SolydX partition from the usb stick to the eEMMC (with GParted o Clonezilla) and finally use SuberGrub to install Grub in the eMMC.

But it's preferable a solution usable by everybody.

Without a system like yours I cannot do more than I already did.
I'll have to wait until they are offered cheap or wait for somebody rich who donates one ;)

Unfortunately for you, if the latest version doesn't help, I cannot help you further.

:o It did? Without any problems? Did you have to do anything special or was the installer doing everything that was needed? Did you save the terminal output by any chance?

SolydXK is not a company (yet). So, I cannot send you an invoice and even if I could, I wouldn't. This is for the benefit of all. I hope this will help you to do your job even better. Of course, a donation is always welcome!

I'll upload the live installer to our main repository.

[EDIT]
I've read that getting wifi to work could be a problem. Did you have any problems with that?

It worked without any problem and without any changes made by me.

I didn't save the terminal output, but I can run de installer again this night if you want. The only difference will be now there is grub in the mbr and SolydX is installed

No, that won't be necessary. Enjoy your new system!
