Tested operating systems

OS status

Some operating system have problems running with different storage medias. These table shows currently tested systems on BIOS v4.9.0.x with corresponding medias:

OS SD card SATA disk mSATA disk USB stick
Voyage X1 OK OK OK*2
Debian OK OK OK OK*2
OPNsense OK OK OK OK*2
pfSense OK OK* OK OK*2

*- works well with BIOS v4.6.8 or later in mainline and all legacy releases; for v4.6.7 and older mainline versions issues with installation and system functionality (installation break, unwanted reboots), can be fixed by adding a hint hint.ahci.0.msi="0", for more information see this document

*2 - all apu boards have problems with USB 3.x stick detection in BIOS, system is working properly, but after reboot/warmboot/coldboot USB stick may not appear in BIOS boot menu (depends on the stick, well working sticks are mentioned in this document)

X1 - Voyage Linux is bootable on SD card and works well in read-only mode, remounting as read-write and writing changes to SD sometimes results in kernel panic which often leads to non-operable system
