Librem 14 does not boot from USB Pure OS 9


I have been testing Librem 14 and successfully installed Pure OS 10 Dev.

I have also installed latest firmware update Coreboot/Pureboot as per instructions

Now Librem 14 stuck on booting from USB with Pure OS 9 (pureos-9.0-gnome-live_20200806-amd64.hybrid.iso):

  1. Select your USB Disk: /dev/sdb1_PureOS_9.0_GNOME_Live
  2. Select your boot option: Live_system_[vmlinuz-4.19.0-9-amd64]

The error I get:

Failed to find file /vmlinuz-4.19.0-9-amd64
!!! Failed to boot w/ options: Live system|elf|kernel /vmlinuz-4.19.0-9-amd64|initrd /initrd.img-4.19.0-9-amd64|append boot=casper quiet splash
!!!! Something failed during USB boot
!!!!! Starting recovery shell

I have tested the boot media to start installation on a ThinkCentre and it is working.

I think that the issue is related to Coreboot/Pureboot but there is no instructions how to downgrade. Have you got a tip?

Can someone please help what to do or is it best to contact support?

This is correct, you need PureOS 10 on the Librem Mini v2 and Librem 14.

Librem 14 supports PureOS 10, Byzantium and up! Thank God for that. I have wasted hours yesterday trying to make it work! LOL

Thanks @nicole.faerber
