Linux boot notes

The multi boot mechanism works as follow.
Starting from a switched OFF Gemini, press the Esc (On) key to start the unit until the Gemini vibrates. Once you feel the vibration you can choose the boot mode by pressing the following key combination:
  • Boot 1: This is the default booting option when no buttons are pressed.
  • Recovery Mode: Esc (On) is pressed. This will always boot into overy mode.
  • Boot 2: Side (silver) button is pressed.
  • Boot 3: Esc(On) key is pressed and Side button is also pressed

After the screen turns ON you can release the keys.
