Installation instructions

Installing to eMMC Boot (recommended)

By installing Tow-Boot to eMMC Boot, your PINE64 Pinebook (A64) will be able to start using standards-based booting without conflicting with the operating system storage.

To do so, you will need to write the eMMC Boot installer image to an SD card.

 # dd if=mmcboot.installer.img of=/dev/XXX bs=1M oflag=direct,sync status=progress

Once done, start the system, and in the boot menu, select “Flash firmware to eMMC Boot”.

Once this is done, remove the installation media, and verify Tow-Boot starts from power-on.

Installing to shared storage

Using the shared storage strategy on the PINE64 Pinebook (A64) can be done by writing the shared.disk-image.img to an SD card or eMMC.

 # dd if=shared.disk-image.img of=/dev/XXX bs=1M oflag=direct,sync status=progress
