    STK2M364CC - Lubuntu install help


      Can someone please tell me where I am going wrong.


      I've followed multiple tutorials on how to install Ubuntu/Lubuntu onto the compute stick. But it seems I am doing something wrong.




      As you can see on this tutorial they have a "Select operating system", this I do not have.


      I've tried installing straight off a SD card and an SD card in a USB reader. All help is appreciated.

          Only Windows is SUPPORTED on your stick.

            Ok, thanks for the quick response.

              You don't need to worry about that step as your device already uses a 64-bit bootloader (note: the article you link to is for Intel Atom devices).


              If you can outline what you actually want I'll try and help. Some questions I have are:

              • do you want to run Ubuntu (or Lubuntu) as your main OS?
              • do you want the OS to be installed on the in storage (eMMC) of the device or from a USB or micro SD card?
              • do you need to dual-boot with another OS?
              • are you concerned about storage limitations and want to run the OS across multiple storage (e.g internal plus micro SD card)?
              • are you trying to install from a USB or from a micro SD card?

              otherwise simply 'dd' the latest Canonical Ubuntu (or Lubuntu) ISO to a USB and boot from it by selecting the USB from the 'F10' menu and then install to the internal storage by double-clicking on the desktop's 'Install' icon once booted. Your device works with Ubuntu (or Lubuntu) OOTB and does not require anything special for installation.

                Okay. Sure, no problem.


                • Lubuntu as main OS, but Ubuntu will do.
                • Either, the SD card wont be used for anything else.
                • No
                • No as it is just being used to display network graphs
                • I've tried installing from an SD card and from a USB card reader with an SD card.


                I've tried this using Etcher but when I press F10 nothing shows up.


                Thank you for your response, I'm contemplating sending it back.

                  First I recommend using a USB rather than a micro SD card as on some devices/models the bootloader cannot 'see' the micro SD card at boot and only 'sees' it once booted (I cannot remember whether this is also the case for your device/model).


                  Secondly if you cannot use a Linux machine to write the Ubuntu/Lubuntu ISO to the USB using the 'dd' command then I recommend using 'Rufus' on Windows.


                  Ubuntu (or one of its flavours) works well on your device so persevere rather than sending it back.

                    I am using Intel Compute Stick STK2m364CC with fedora 22 and have not have any issue, yet.
