Installing Debian on Orange Pi PC

After misinterpreting the forum and trying to use loboris’ instructions on the official OrangePi Debian Server image, then having temporary success with a friend’s help, I’ve finally got it working.

The short story is to use loboris’ image, and his uImage and script.bin files, and follow the instructions here.

Step 6 took place within the BOOT folder — so really just copying the uImage_OPI-2 file over uImage, and script.bin.OPI-PC_720p60 over script.bin. First make sure you’ve copied the most up-to-date versions of those two files into the BOOT folder.

My initial error on step 6 was to assume that I was copying from the non-SD location and copying onto the SD. So I started in dev/sda and tried copying into dev/sdb (i.e. BOOT)

I ran through all the steps using Lubuntu. It was quick and works.
