First time install on X201


Download minimal 64bit .iso from website
dd it to USB flash drive and boot
Alt-F8 is manual
Alt-F1 is console
# fdisk
# mkfs.ext4 -L nixos /dev/sda1
# mount /dev/disk/by-label/nixos /mnt
# nixos-generate-config --root /mnt
# nano /mnt/etc/nixos/configuration.nix
edit: boot.loader.grub.device = "/dev/sda";

Likely will have to patch the grub device after boot (if it boots).

# nix-env -i emacs git darcs openssh

After editing /etc/nixos/configuration.nix
# nixos-rebuild switch
