to get etcher for debian do: 1. echo "deb https://dl.bintray.com/resin-io/debian stable etcher" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/etcher.list 2. sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://pgp.mit.edu:80 --recv-keys 379CE192D401AB61 3. sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install etcher-electron 4. get the os and zip it Make sure you have a good & reliable SD card and a proper power supply. Archives can be uncompressed with 7-Zip on Windows, Keka on OS X and 7z on Linux (apt-get install p7zip-full). RAW images can be written with Etcher (all OS). 5. start etcher gui by etcher-electron and follow the wizard 6. umount and put the sd card into your board. Boot Insert SD card into a slot and power the board. (First) boot (with DHCP) takes up to 35 seconds with a class 10 SD Card and cheapest board. Login Login as root on HDMI / serial console or via SSH and use password 1234. You will be prompted to change this password at first login. Next you will be asked to create a normal user account that is sudo enabled (beware of default QWERTY keyboard settings at this stage).
unxz image_file.img.xz Then locate your SD card by fdisk -l. If you are using micro-sd adapter, then it could be linked as /dev/mmcblk or if you are using USB-SD converter, the device name might be linked as /dev/sdb. (if you see sdb1 sdb2, etc., they refer the 1st partition, 2nd partition ...) Make sure that the SD card (and any partition) is not mounted, you should use umount -a or umount /dev/sdb1 (2/3 ... for the partitions), otherwise you may need to deal further problems then you can load the image to the SD card by dd if=imagefile.img of=/dev/sdb bs=4M conv=fsync
