Hi
I recently bought a Duino one board with pci VGA card. But I failed to boot Linux from my micro SD card.
For Lubunto 12.4, it gives me the following error:
"Your installation CD-ROM couldn't be mounted. This probably means that the CD-ROM was not in the driver. If so you can insert it and try again"
With Debian live 8.1.0, when I try to install, I get "No common CD-ROM drive was detected". When I use the live boot option, I got the following kernel panic: "not synching: No working init found. Try passing init= option to kernel. " (which basically means that FS failed to load.)

Any idea why the boot process is not able to load the sd card? Any help would be appreciated.

Some details:
I was able to boot into FreeDOS and interact with it using VGA display and keyboard connected to USB.

Hello, nachshonc

Do you install Lubuntu and Debian with USB flash drive? If yes, try to do following:

I also ever meet the same issue with USB flash drive during installing, but finally solve with USB CD-ROM.

Thanks for the answer.
However, when I typed df -h I could see "none" and "devtmpfs", but nothing else (no /dev/sdb1 or similar). Looks like Linux cannot identify the sd card, which is rather strange because it is booting from the sd card.
Running isohybrid on the iso file also didn't help.

The booting is done from the sd card and not a USB stick. The USB is used for the keyboard. Is this problematic?

Hello,

In my case, i first build a Lubuntu 12.04 installing USB stick by unetbootin program, then insert a "empty" sd card to 86Duino board and boot from USB stick to install Lubuntu operating system on sd card. After booting from USB stick, follow the installing steps to install Lubuntu 12.04 to sd card via USB stick, then see the above issue during installing process.
If your sd card is also build by like unetbootin program that insert Lubuntu iso file to be a installing disk, there is not Lubuntu operating system in sd card, just the installing programs (and LiveCD). Check your installing way for the sd card.
