I sat by my computer truing to follow this instruction for a total of maybe six to eight hours Friday and Saturday. Encountering various types of problems but eventually ending up in a situation where Volumio froze every time i pressed Ctrl+Alt+F1.
Then I realized that it’s MUCH easier to just install the internal SSD I wanted to install Volumio on in a PC with windows and to mount the image directly where I wanted it.
Obviously this might be tricky if you are using a system where your storage media is hard to reach.
But anyway: this would be the instruction for that, based on the instruction on how to create a create a botable SD-card. You need yo use another imager that allows you to chose an internal storage media, I found Etcher.
I suggest you ad it to the first post as an alternative for non-hackers
1: Download and extract Volumio and you’ll have a .img image file
2: Download and extract Etcher: etcher.io/
3: Install the storage media that is going to be used in your Volumio-system on your PC (you might want to start with this).
4: Run Etcher and flash the storage media according to the instructions. You will have to use “unsafe mode” in order to be able to flash to a SSD or HDD.
5: Exit from etcher.io/ and remove the disk!
6: Done! Volumio is now on your SSD/HDD!
7: Put it back where it belongs
