dragonboard410c_sdcard_install_debian-252.zip
so i can load this on to the sd card and then install the image on the emmc or the image will install on the sdcard itself?

There’s a few additional steps.
I’d recommend taking a look at this wiki:

More about the install images and how to use them: https://www.96boards.org/documentation/ConsumerEdition/DragonBoard-410c/Installation/
This should get you started…

@ric96 IIRC dragonboard410c_sdcard_developer_debian-252.zip is used for booting from SD card itself (i.e., without flashing onto eMMC)

dragonboard410c_sdcard_install_debian-252.zip is used to flash eMMC using image in SD card.

In your case you might want to use the first one. If you want to create a bootable SD card on your own, you can refer the below link:

Hope this helps!
