    So I'm trying to install the image provided on here:

    And then following the instructions to put nomodeset in the boot parameters. I still get a completely blank screen. Tried removing quiet and splash, and I get nothing.

    There is nothing wrong with the gpu, because more recent vanilla images boot just fine....but with no emmc support.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    It is just the extra effort needs to be performed:
    1. Ryzen Embedded CPU/GPU is too new and only the latest Linux versions support it. If want a specific OS version, then the necessary OS support needs to be back-ported.
    2. The specific EMMC type needs a driver and it is not the most commonly used type. So once again, porting/injecting the driver into the installation media most likely is needed.

    Naturally, one possible solution is to have a prebuild installation image for BOLT created and stored in Google Drive for users to download.
    evaloverde and slidvendetta like this.
