Hi! for the past few days, I have been trying to get a mini pc (Ryzen 5600u) to boot from a 120gb SSD with the dd-wrt x86_64 image on it. I used the full vga image. No matter what I do, the PC will not detect the ssd as a bootable disk. I tried using physdiskwrite, I tried using dd in Manjaro (arch) and also checked to see if the partition was bootable, and it was flagged as bootable. The mini pc's BIOS is set to legacy (I also tried UEFI just for shits and giggles). I have read a few posts on here concerning some similar things, all to no avail. Any ideas would be appreciated, I have exhausted my own.
my first thought is that something is not getting detected in the bios correctly...
I would go into the bios and make sure that the disk is detected first... You could also try the boot menu from the bios... Even if the system is not bootable the bios would detect the disk and then provide an error message along the lines of "No bootable system found"... Are you getting to this point? If not I do not think you are having your settings correct.
If you get to that point then we can work on that error.
