    你可以安装gentoo
    当安装引导器的时候使用以下命令:
    grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot --removable
    /boot是一个ESP分区

    you can install gentoo linux
    or
    compile kernel & install grub to ESP partition, the ESP must be fat32 format

    I don't speak English well, I'm sorry

    thanks tonyvicky .
    I will try gentoo linux and share the results.

    My criteria is :
    Linux OS should not install on eMMC.
    Linux OS should only boot from USB.

    I have one query :
    Have you tried booting from gentoo Linux without installing it on eMMC ?

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi tonyvicky,

    I tried gentoo OS , but Up squared board did not boot.

    Steps :
    1. download gentoo OS from https://mirrors.kernel.org/gentoo//releases/x86/20160704/ URL.
    2. Change the boot order in Up squared BIOS for boot from USB.
    3. Plug in the USB.
    4. Restart the Up squared board.

    Please let me know if I am missing anything.

    Thanks & Regards,

    look at this video

    Actually you only need one ESP and one root partition, then install grub to ESP

    Hi @mohitgahlyan ,

    Did you try to follow the Ubuntu instructions for UP2 board?
