I remember why I woke up so early! It is in anticipation of the pending arrival today of my odroid H2+ :P
Quite traitorous of me to desert you in your hour of need!

I never had an issue booting like that. You could also disable UEFI which is what I think I did

Ice Cream! I need a cup of tea!

Enjoy your wake up tea.

Well pulling the USB stick and reinserting it did nothing. Next I'll try disabling UEFI.

I couldn't identify a Bios option to disable UEFI, so next I#m trying this...

The way around this problem is to rename the Debian .iso file to a .img file, and then to write the image to the USB with Win32DiskImager (I used 0.9.5 and it worked fine). The install will then work.

Sorry had guests.
Those 2 "methods" will not work as you have seen, that is the "lets touch something, maybe it starts working" type of solutions.
Debian with throw that error for to many things, but one of them is setting the SATA to "native" mode, and the other is not having any devices in the USB ports besides the USB with the image. Have not seen that error since the Wheezy times.
Mint never has such issues, nor had Ubuntu, they just work, so makes me wonder if they are both based on Debian, why the hell does it not work there? Using a completely different installer might have something to do with it.

I fear that this weeks video is going to be a bit of a lemon.

Hmm, My Odroid arrived today and I got it straight up on Linux Mint using Tommy's method here

I had a Mint 19.3 USB lying around and just used it. Only thing I did in the Bios was to set the boot order so the USB went first.






Bloody amazing!

Sorry Mark!

Getting Odroids normally requires a trip to the docter. :)

I tried that Mint Distro you linked to, but it uses the same Debian Install wigdet, and also gets hung up on looking for a CD drive which is non existant.

It shouldn't be no other USB ports in use, as two others are (keyboard and mouse).
The Bios provides no options under the SATA menu. It just lists the hard drive attached to SATA.

I then pulled the hard drive off the MAHO's ITX PC, and tried to install there, but the same problem occurs. Cant get past it trying to mount a non existant CD drive.

There were also some references here to opening a terminal and mounting the the USB as CDRom manually. It says to open a shell window with Alt + Fnum, but I tried all combinations of function numbers it didn't get a shell.

I tried burning the ISO in DD mode with Rufus...
Once it got to the CD issue, I tried Alt-F2 like in this thread. Nothing.

Does anyone know of a Preempt ISO which doesn't use that Debian installer?
