Parallella 16 "Desktop" is alive

My Parallella 16 arrived this morning.   I installed Ubuntu 14.04 on it already and have it booted up and DHCP connected to my network.  Start up for this is a bit more complex than others http://www.parallella.org/create-sdcard/ However it did come up just fine.

I first attempted to create the bootable SDcard using a server I had available that runs Ubuntu 12.04 and I tried to follow the directions in the link above however, the directions weren't really that simple to follow and I got lost on step 5 and couldn't locate the /BOOT for the SD card.

So then I followed the Windows method and that worked perfectly!



LOTS OF WORK ON THIS AHEAD!
