I have a Colibri iMX7 Dual 512 MB and the Viola Board. According to the sticker on the delivered SoM it seems that it runs Windows CE per default and according to the documentation the debug messages over serial connection are disabled as default, so when connecting to a USB to Serial adapter I can´t see any messages…
So my question is: Is there any way to use the iMX7 on the Viola without a Monitor attached to it and further load linux on it? Or do I at least need a monitor or an evaluation board (like Iris) for that purpose? If I would get an eval board can the SoM just be flashed there and then be put into the Viola out of the box?
