I am a newbie here and have limited linux knowledge. I have been trying to install Volumio 2 on the flash memory of a Wintel Pro “TV Box”. The Wintel runs Windows 10 Home just fine but when I copy the x86 image to it using the instructions in this post (sudo dd if=fullnameofthevolumioimage of=/dev/sdY bs=4M, replacing sdY with the device associated with the internal flash memory), it copies correctly, although slowly, and when complete I have the three partitions. But when I boot the device, it dies during the boot process indicating it can’t find the UUID of the image. I assume this is because it is looking for /dev/sda, which it cant find since the flash has a different device name.
Is it possible to use another image that is meant to be installed on flash memory? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here are the specs on the Wintel Pro “TV Box”:
W8 Pro mini PC
2GB DDR3L RAM
RTL8723 Wireless 802.11 b/g/n
Intel Atom x5-Z8300 Cherry Trail
I have installed Volumio 2 on an old Dell laptop and it is working correctly, but would really like to get it installed on this mini-pc.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
PS I forgot to mention that I can also boot Volumio directly from a USB drive on the Wintel box, but I have to enter the bios to select the USB drive each time it boots. (The Wintel bios does not have an option to change the default boot order… the main reason I want to boot from the internal flash memory). Everything seems to work correctly when I boot from the USB drive, other than no audio from the HDMI connection. My receiver does have HDMI in, so I would like to use HDMI rather than a USB DAC but I have decided to wait until I can see if I can boot from flash before I spend time on the HDMI audio. Thanks again. Carl
