Can you explain a little bit more what you mean?
Are you trying to install a headless Linux (Ubuntu Server or Debian without X Server)?
If this is the case i don't see why this should not work.
Yes, I want to install a headless Debian server. I use Debian 7 and all is running. But I did not find a solution to run the DE3815 without connecting a monitor. It seems that Grub2 is not loading anything. Do You know a solution?
I use an ssh connection, which I can use only with a monitor attached to the board.
There is new BIOS release for DE3815TYKHE , but I dont encourage you to upgrade for now
