[fedora-arm] Re: How to install on soldered eMMC storage?

Nowadays several SBC devices provide eMMC storage soldered and no longer removable. How to install on this?

My first idea was to first install on mSD card, boot, and from this repeat the installation with the eMMC target. But this doesn't work at least with Server. It complains about duplicate UUID partition and  aborts.

This should work. But you would need to remove the mSD card to boot from the eMMC.

Do we need an additional target, e.g. (configured)disk.img that we can push via OTG to the eMMC

Some boards have ways to do this. It would help if you mentioned the board you are talking about. You can probably also just boot an installer image and do an install onto the eMMC using anaconda. But to give any tips on this we would need to know the board.


Or any other, better, easier idea?
