Tutorial: BeagleBone Black: Installing Operating Systems @ The Adafruit Learning System


Tutorial: BeagleBone Black: Installing Operating Systems @ The Adafruit Learning System

The BeagleBone Black includes a 2GB on-board eMMC flash memory chip. It comes with the Angstrom distribution factory pre-installed. You can flash new operating systems including Debian, Ubuntu, Android, and others. The following pages will illustrate the steps to getting the latest of each type of supported distribution onto the on-board eMMC.

In addition to the eMMC, you can also boot directly from a microSD card similarly to the original BeagleBone.

We’re starting out with instructions for Angstrom, but hope to add to it in the future!  If you don’t have a BeagleBone Black yet, you can add your name to the list to be notified for when we get them back in stock.
