Hi,

I am planning to use Ubuntu 18.04 (https://releases.ubuntu.com/18.04/) on LattePanda v1. Since there is someone successfully installed Ubuntu 20.04 on LattePanda v1, can I assume that Ubuntu 18.04 will also work on LattePanda v1 when I install it?

I've installed Ubuntu v20.04 on a LattePanda v1 and it work very well (It took about 58-68 sec to load in Ubuntu).

But for my product, I need a more powerfull computer, I plan to use Delta. I've installed a working Ubuntu 20.10 now but I've problem with the Power On boot Bios functionality (I've updated the Bios...) and it's mandatory for me.

Curently we use Intel NUC but if I can go over the Power On problem, I think the LattePanda Delta can be a serious canditate to run Ubuntu as embeded in our systems.

@thunderbwee, how many Delta boards do you have? we suggest you update the latest default Delta BIOS first. and then install alto-power-on BIOS.

I am trying to understand how to use all the suggestions here:
* booting from SD card
* auto power off

But can't find options of North/South bridge in the chipset of BIOS. Have purchased 10+ LattePande Alpha, to build a media cluster - but getting some worries after not being able to do simple things simply.

Device: LattePanda Alpha 8100y KR300
BIOS Info:
* Project Version: S70KR300
* BIOS Version: CDJQ-BS-7-S70KR300-KF65A-101-I x64
* Build Date: 06/12/2019

@LattePanda is this something you can help with?

UPDATE #1: Updated to the "linux compatible BIOS" https://github.com/LattePandaTeam/Latte ... 20BIOS.rar

Results:
* USB Drive boot option appeared (didn't need it)
* No option to boot from SD card :/
* No options for south/north bridge control in BIOS :/

Bios Info:
* Project Version: S70KR300
* BIOS Version: CDJQ-BS-7-S70KR300-KF65A-101-M x64
* Build Date: 03/18/2020

@svscorp, Hi, do you mean running OS from SD card? LattePanda doesn't support booting from SD card. you can add an NVME SSD on your Alpha m.2 M Key slot and boot up.
and which seetings you want to change in the BIOS? the BIOS menu will have slight difference on different models.

@LattePanda, thank you for your response.

Yes I meant running OS from SD card. Adding SSD is an overhead for my rack set-up, unfortunately :( May I ask, what LattePanda's feature made it impossible technically to boot from SD? Just curious :)

About the BIOS - I read in this thread (and might misunderstood) that making SD card working, require BIOS setting change for the `chipset > south bridge > LPSS & SCC configuration > SCC SDIO support`. But it appears to be not to boot from SD card, rather something else. So I was not able to find this option, that what I meant.

So what I ended up doing for now is resizing the main partition with Windows and installing Linux on it. Goes w/o issues so far... but the 4K video playing is sluggish, comparing to the Windows one (when running from Youtube, in example). Maybe you can recommend a specific drivers/codecs to make it fly in Panda?
