Installing Debian on embedded device

I have x86 based SBC, with a compact flash. I want to install minimal debian on my Cf so that my embedded board will startup linux debian.
How can I install it on CF. I dont need guis.

Welcome to Linux Questions!

I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your question but I reckon it may well be similar to how you set upa bootable SD card for the Raspberry Pi SBC. Check out

Note, this is for an ARM based system but the way to build the bootable memory card should be similar I would think.

Play Bonny!
