[Edit]This problem is coming from grub4dos bootloader config and is the same as here from five years ago.

I can confirm it by running grub4dosconfig when booting off a Bionic flash drive on a machine with an internal emmc drive.

Emmc drives are definitely bootable, although I have only done it in a UEFI environment with grub2.

But even if you made the internal emmc drive bootable with a manual install of grub4dos, I doubt if Xenial could find its main sfs file on the emmc drive.

Funny thing is though Daphile, the music server, installs automatically and boots without trouble.
But that does seem to be the problem with puppy install rcrsn51, Thanks.

Not funny at all. Daphile has been built using the framework of mainstream Linux. I expect that the Buster Starter Kit would work nicely on this machine.

Try using this program to do the install to eMMC.

It has options to choose several different boot loaders.
Use a different boot loader.
Do not use Grub4dos boot loader.

That looks interesting bigpup, can I show my ignorance and ask:

Cancel that question I think I am on the way. May be back.
