Dear Parrot community,
I try to install Parrot OS Home as Dual Boot with Windows 10 on my HUAWEI MateBook 13 AMD 2020 (which rely on a 256 GB Samsung SSD disk).
I’m facing an issue after selected language and local: the detected media cannot be used for installation. By browsing the internet, I only find topics about CDROM issues, but this is not my case. And maybe this is more a Debian issue than a Parrot issue…
Version: 4.11 Desktop Environment: Mate Edition: Home
I first created a USB boot device with Etcher (on Windows 10) by flashing Parrot-home-4.11_amd64.iso, as recommended by the documentation. The computed SHA1 hash of the downloaded ISO file is identical to the one here: https://download.parrot.sh/parrot/iso/4.11/signed-hashes.txt (099bbf7813863b32dc5d1b74edb350985939d3ae)
I obviously had to disable Secure Boot on BIOS configuration by pressing F2 at startup (Product Name : HN-WX9W, BIOS Version 1.13). Then, by pressing F12, I choose to boot on the EFI USB Device detected.
Everything is going fine until the installer try to mount the USB device:
Detect and mount installation media. Incorrect installation media detected. The detected media cannot be used for installation. Please provide suitable media to continue with the installation.
A solution I found in my researches was to flash USB device by using Rufus in DD mode: the problem still occurs.
I opened a shell (BusyBox v1.30.1) to investigate the issue and used the few commands I get (I can’t load other tools from debian-installer since the installation media… is not mounted):

As mount told me, the only partition disk mounted is /dev/nvme0n1p1 which is mount on /media… I don’t know why.
mount (truncate for the relevant data, I cut tmpfs partitions):
/dev/nvme0n1p1 on /media type vfat (rw,relatime,fmask=0022,dmask=0022,codepage=437,locharset=ascii,shortname=mixed,utf8,errors=remount-ro)
I don’t know it’s a good idea but I tried to mount /dev/sda1 on /media/usb (/media/usb was already created, but I think I created it manually, not sure the directory was there at the beginning, but this was before I understand that /dev/nvme0n1p1 was mounted here):
mount -t iso9660 /dev/sda1 /media/usb mounting /dev/sda1 on /media/usb failed : no such device
Why does the /dev/nvme0n1p1 is mounted by default on /media?
Why can’t I mount /dev/sda1?
What is the /dev/sda2 msdos partition on my USB device?
Did I miss something?
Thank you for your help
