Installing Alt-Linux on VIM3

Installing Alt-Linux on VIM3 is a requirement of my employer, for this purpose VIM3 was purchased.
There is a system image, tell me how best to install it on VIM3.

The question is most likely addressed to @numbqq, @Frank.
I really need your help.

I managed to run this Alt-Linux rescue image on VIM3.
http://nightly.altlinux.org/p9-aarch64/release/alt-p9-rescue-20210612-aarch64.iso
It can be used to fix the system, but I need a full-fledged Alt-Linux system with a graphical interface.

I’m really sorry, I wrote a link to the wrong OS image (different processor architecture)
Correct link

The first message was corrected

easy way

  1. write mainline uboot to SPI or EMMC boot areas - via krescue (dl.khadas.com - Index of /Firmware/Krescue/system/) or by any other way ( dl.khadas.com - Index of /Firmware/uboot/mainline/ )
  2. download any iso image for example this one http://nightly.altlinux.org/sisyphus-aarch64/tested/regular-jeos-systemd-latest-aarch64.iso
  3. write iso image via dd to sd or usb drive
  4. plug this installation disk into device and start device

EFI start -> linux -> install

Bad news:
linux kernel started but altlinux installation system cant find installation media device :wink: plz ask altlinux team about this problem

BTW: for example we can start latest ubuntu iso images like any other

BTW: actual problem is distros kernel which still don’t have good quality for many arm devices its same for most of main distros

small HOW-TO for AltLinux manual installation

An intermediate result has been achieved, the bootloader and kernel from Khadas Ubuntu rootfs from the stable version alt-p9-mate-20210612-aarch64.tar.xz

There is one more problem with working with a 2K monitor, I will start a separate topic to discuss this problem.
