Following the advice on the fit-PC forum I made the following BIOS settings:
Drive C: Nand Flash | Boot 1stIt booted to the installer from the USB stick. I chose the
Drive D: IDE
cliboot option and set it off.
So that's the USB stick part over then, I thought. Just a normal install from here. (Wrong! See part 2 for the gory details.)
The installer's first big question is partitioning. I went with
#1 primary 4GB XFS /No swap. I can add it later if I need it.
#5 logical 246GB XFS /home
I'm giving XFS a try this time because I might end up storing some ISO files on this disk. It's supposed to be a good file system for large files.
