How to install LE on internal HDD/SSD

  • Sorry for the dumb question but I could not find clear instructions how to install Libreelec on an internal drive.


    There is a very detailed manual how to use the USB creator, however no any word nor instructions what to do with the USB media created.

    I would like to help a friend of mine and he states that his PC boots form the USB stick directly to LE. No option to install on internal drive.

    :?:

  • Create the USB .. boot from it and unless you hit the keyboard in the first few seconds to start temp/permanent 'live' (run from USB) modes it will start the installer GUI which asks you to pick a storage device (i.e. internal drive) to install to.

  • Thanks. Would be nice to describe it in the wiki as well.

    I agree. It does make a change, that somebody actually reads the wiki before posting a question.

  • also to write on nand-Flash on Amlogic Devices is not in Wiki...

    Good. It reduces the opportunity for people to make the LE install process even more complicated.

  • I hope it is ok to ask on this thread because after reading through it, I have a question.

    Is it possible to install LibreELEC on the Amlogic devices? Does the installation occur the same way as listed above? I ask because I have a one of those Kodi boxes (full of bloat crap) that I would like to install LibreELEC on.

  • Choose the device type from here [INDEX] LibreELEC community builds for Amlogic


    then READ the instructions


    basically, write the image to a sd or usb add the correct device tree, & reboot the box
