STK2M364CC - Lubuntu install help

Can someone please tell me where I am going wrong.

I've followed multiple tutorials on how to install Ubuntu/Lubuntu onto the compute stick. But it seems I am doing something wrong.

http://linuxiumcomau.blogspot.com/2016/04/ubuntu-1604-iso-for-intel-atom-compute.html http://linuxiumcomau.blogspot.com/2016/04/ubuntu-1604-iso-for-intel-atom-compute.html

As you can see on this tutorial they have a "Select operating system", this I do not have.

I've tried installing straight off a SD card and an SD card in a USB reader. All help is appreciated.

Only Windows is SUPPORTED on your stick.

You don't need to worry about that step as your device already uses a 64-bit bootloader (note: the article you link to is for Intel Atom devices).

If you can outline what you actually want I'll try and help. Some questions I have are:

  • do you want to run Ubuntu (or Lubuntu) as your main OS?
  • do you want the OS to be installed on the in storage (eMMC) of the device or from a USB or micro SD card?
  • do you need to dual-boot with another OS?
  • are you concerned about storage limitations and want to run the OS across multiple storage (e.g internal plus micro SD card)?
  • are you trying to install from a USB or from a micro SD card?

otherwise simply 'dd' the latest Canonical Ubuntu (or Lubuntu) ISO to a USB and boot from it by selecting the USB from the 'F10' menu and then install to the internal storage by double-clicking on the desktop's 'Install' icon once booted. Your device works with Ubuntu (or Lubuntu) OOTB and does not require anything special for installation.

Okay. Sure, no problem.

  • Lubuntu as main OS, but Ubuntu will do.
  • Either, the SD card wont be used for anything else.
  • No
  • No as it is just being used to display network graphs
  • I've tried installing from an SD card and from a USB card reader with an SD card.

I've tried this using Etcher but when I press F10 nothing shows up.

Thank you for your response, I'm contemplating sending it back.

First I recommend using a USB rather than a micro SD card as on some devices/models the bootloader cannot 'see' the micro SD card at boot and only 'sees' it once booted (I cannot remember whether this is also the case for your device/model).

Secondly if you cannot use a Linux machine to write the Ubuntu/Lubuntu ISO to the USB using the 'dd' command then I recommend using 'Rufus' on Windows.

Ubuntu (or one of its flavours) works well on your device so persevere rather than sending it back.
