I have a Gemini T34 and can't seem to find the bios to boot from a USB drive.  I have plugged in a USB with Linux, but I just get a blank screen.  Is there a how-to on installing Linux on the T34.  Have looked at other Beelink product how-tos, but nothing seems to work.  I'm not sure how to proceed.


Thanks.

I just put linux mint on mine.
1st thing to do, is get into the bios, on mine it was the esc. button, press it on startup. It usually flashes on the bottom screen to tell you what button like it could be f14
2nd thing to do, is change the part in the bios that has your USB as the second boot, it needs to be 1st boot.
Restart with your USB, your Wifi may not work, that can be installed later when your installing it for good. It will ask you if you want  proprietary software say yes. I used an Ethernet cable to get all my updated software then my WIFI worked.

Hi,
What version do you have installed? We tested and installed Ubuntu 18.04 without problems. Did the installation process confirm the correctness?

sorry for the late reply. it came with windows 10. I tried using an OpenSuse usb drive, but couldn't even get the bios to show.
Retried with Ubuntu 18.04 and can get into the bios, but I don't see the usb drive as an option to boot from.

Are there some options in the bios I need to change?

Thanks.

Don't know what happened, but the usb showed up in the boot manager and everything is good now.  Must need to setup windows first.
