The short answer is yes, but it requires a lot of work.
As I mentioned this not only possible, but actually you can create a vanilla kernel for the Galileo in a relatively short time. However tweaking the vanilla kernel to be fully compatible with the Galileo's hardware is a very long and tedious process that could take weeks on modifying and upgrading each driver and everything needed to link all the hardware peripherals to the kernel.
I get this error when booting from MicroSD card:
Here's how my MicroSD looks like (I made it bootable using the OSX):
and here's the format:
However looking at the answer I was provided by JPMontero I don't have some of the stuffs here :
Any idea what is wrong? I have the same exact files downloaded and followed the manual by intel and have the same number of bytes on my MicroSD mentioned at the end of the process. Any help is really appreciated.
The files you have in the SD image are for the eglibc image (IoT), the other files are for the uclibc image. About your SD image, it looks good and you have all the files. Try making the SD bootable again to have a fresh install of the IoT Image, download it again to make sure these files are not corrupted. If this does not work please attach the file boot/grub/grub.conf.
I am confused as if I should put the iot-devkit or the SDcard stuff in the SD card. Also using the SDcard link you gave me, I end up with this log (it is not the whole thing but is as much as I could copy) public - Pastebin.com
I am very confused and I wonder if there is a step by step tutorial you can link me to for booting from the MicroSD card using the Putty? I am currently using the UART to USB port for this purpose not the MicroUSB to USB port and I hope that is correct.
Here's the file I have downloaded using the link you gave me:
Here's what I copied into the SD card (didn't use the dd command just copied):
and here's how my grub looks like:
I am literally which one I should download : SDCARD.* or iot-devkit-latest* ? What's the difference and which one I should in which case? Do both support node? Also can I just copy them to the SD card or should I use dd command in OSX terminal? I did the dd command for the iot-devkit* but it didn't work. Any explanation is really appreciated.
