TrimSlice H250: Ubuntu on a SDXC Card

http://trimslice.com/web/trim-slice-h-specifications
  • This is a workaround as the Trimslice OS installers do NOT make a bootable HD on the TrimSlice H 250 (even though it appears to have done so)
I used a 160 GB HD- Worked on 320 GB HD (see above)--Satellit 18:36, 27 June 2012 (EDT)
  • This is based on the fact that The installer-ubuntu-natty-2.6.38.3_l4t.r1.01.img is a working Ubuntu install
Note: Running from the SanDisk (30MB/s) Ultra 64 GB SDXC seems faster than either the Internal HD in the TrimSlice H250 or the ssd in the TrimSlicePro
  • In the TrimSlice H250 Ubuntu Desktop:
  • Download:
http://trimslice.com/download/installers/ubuntu/natty/installer-ubuntu-natty-2.6.38.3_l4t.r1.01.img.zip
  • Unzip file
  • write to 64 GB SDXC Card
dd if=installer-ubuntu-natty-2.6.38.3_l4t.r1.01.img of=/dev/mmcblk0
  • Open with gparted in another Ubuntu PC
Resize Partition (Max seems to be 30GB)
Create a fat partition from remaining 30GB on Card.-Labeled MyFiles
  • Boot Card in Trimslice H250
  • Create USER in System Settings
(NEW USER) password is 111111
Change to Administrator with password
  • Shutdown
  • Reboot Card and log in as (NEW USER) with password
  • Have fun
  • MyFiles 30 GB partition appears on Desktop
HINT Move the installer icon from the desktop to Downloads for safety
Updates on SDXC Card
