I got mine today and have been fumbling my way through figuring it all out. Will drop a few pictures and things I’ve found out which may or may not have been obvious from the start.
Besides the unit itself it came with a keyboard, mouse, stand, and DP -> VGA adapter.
Took me a while to figure out how to remove the cover of the chassis until I read the directions that can be found here.
You will have to access the BIOS and change the boot order as it’s defaulted to the ThinOS which sits on the eMMC I believe. The BIOS key is F2 and you also need to unlock the menu with the password “Fireport”.
From here I was able to switch the boot order to pickup my Ubuntu Flash Drive.
Going through the Ubuntu Installation I wasn’t able to find the M.2 NVMe drive that I had popped in. JDM pointed out that it may not support NVMe and that matches with what I found here.
So quick run to Microcenter to grab a M.2 SATA and we were in business. Quick and easy Ubuntu install followed by the transcode guide.
Was hoping to use this as a pfsense box and grab something with a 5500t or better CPU for Plex but I’ll see if this can do the job since there isn’t too many options to add a NIC.
Nputting mentioned possibly adding a M.2 -> PCI-E to try and add a NIC but I didn’t get much farther than this adapter which needs extra power.
