This document describes how to get a NUC up and running with Fuchsia.
You’ll need the following:
This table shows what I bought from Amazon.
|SSD (Only need one,||B01IAGSDJ0||Works fine.|
|I bought some of each)||B00TGIVZTW||Works fine.|
|Keyboard and Mouse||B00B7GV802||Works fine. Next time I'd get a keyboard with a smaller foot print.|
|HDMI Cable||B014I8SIJY||Works fine.|
|USB 3.0 drive||B01BGTG41W||Works fine.|
Full description of what to do can be found here.
The concise version is as follows: Build Fuchsia. Run “create installer bootfs” script. (If you built release, use -r argument) Copy the installer bootfs over the user bootfs. Plug in USB drive. Unmount the USB drive (via “Disks” if you are on gLinux. If you unmount via the file browser it won’t work). Run “create gigaboot bootable usb” script. (If you built release, use -r argument) Unplug drive.
NUCs don’t come with RAM or an SSD so you need to install them.
At this point the NUC should boot to fuchsia without the usb drive. It’s using the internal SSD. But it won’t work with netbooting. Let’s fix that.
