Got this installed just fine using Ubuntu installation thread. The Mint desktop used is Cinnamon and the whole thing is snappy! It boots to login screen in 17 seconds!!

Is there a simple way to install Linux on this kit? I have an 8gb stick I've used for a few years to install the latest versions of Mint as they became available. I have gone into the bios, changed the boot device to USB...... and tried all options for USB booting from this stick and none of them see it as a boot device. The last version of Mint I installed on another PC is on this stick, nothing has changed on it since then. If I can't do it this way I would not have purchased this box in the first place. :(

Also, I'm not sure if the boot screen would include a USB if the USB wasn't formatted with a FAT32 FS.  Extract the iso to your pc and then copy everything to a USB.   The USB I had in that picture was a FAT32 USB with Linux Mint 18.3 that was tweaked to work with this mini pc.  I posted the iso file in this forum:

The screen shot you showed above doesn't match the one I see on my boot menu with my USB stick inserted. I'll try as you suggest and see how far I get. First format the stick and the write that iso to it.
Anyway thanks for the suggestion, I appreciate your attempt to help.

U can't just write the iso file to USB but extract everything first so looks like screenshot in above tutorial.

I have tried the suggestions made here with no difference. The stick I insert is not seen as a boot device and I've used two different sticks that work fine in other hardware.
Look I am not an engineer, these instructions are far too complicated for me to carry out. I can plug in a bootable USB stick and install Linux that way as it is simple to understand and do. Those instructions for installing Ubuntu are too complex for me to follow. This is not made clear in the product description where it is sold on Amazon. If you cannot provide a PC that I can install off a bootable USB stick that runs a live version of linux which I can then install from, or swap the box I just bought for the same hardware with Linux already on it, then I shall be asking for a refund from Amazon.

Don't give up so easily! ;)

I've been using Linux exclusively at home for 16 years and I had trouble with this PC because the Apollo Lake architecture (even on laptops) won't boot traditional iso image files.  So which iso file did u extract to a FAT32 filesystem?  Which OS do u have on your other computers?  If Windows, then reformat that USB flash like this to get a FAT32 system:

[attachment=15]

Then download my Linux Mint iso which has verification sums to ensure your download wasn't corrupted.  Here's link for iso:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/fuk9loqb45c3goj/linuxium-apollo-linuxmint-18.3-xfce-64bit.iso

sha256sum should be:

eeb89b1fa8b1cf334f1f00728aab0f356c7e4a3bfa65a7b440f63fb1508f42b3

Make sure u extract all files from iso and then copy everything to your new USB. Hopefully you'll now see it as a boot device when u press [F7] at boot.

Your official iso from Linux Mint won't work on these computers so don't use that.

Marty

EDIT: That one uses the XFCE desktop, but if u want a live iso of another desktop on Linux Mint then let me know. If you're going to install this to your SSD, then u can just use apt-get or synaptic to install other desktops.

The same thing happened on one of my USB flash drives but I fixed it.  I talk about it in 2nd post in this thread.

Hope it works for you!

Hello Nepal,

Due to the special nature of the Apollo CPU, we can not directly install the official provided connection download, you must download the ISO file on our forum, and extract it to your FAT32 format U disk, we usually download the ISO file, you Just double-click the ISO, the computer will automatically load the ISO file, you can copy the files inside your U disk, and then insert your U disk, Mini Pc boot or restart, repeatedly press [F7] to boot, select your own USB Equipment, you can guide the success.

If you find it troublesome, I suggest you download UltraISO, download Linux Mint from my forum and extract it to a USB drive using UltraISO.
For any installation, any one of the machines, when we leave the factory will be strictly controlled, will have to undergo a test before they leave the factory.

Best regards,
Hu
