Ubuntu 14.04 Installation Instructions
Since X-C1 SDP's are UEFI based, they can be installed using the same instructions as a typical UEFI server. Please refer to ARM/Server/Install/UEFI-ARM for further details, with the one caveat that the 14.04 installer can be found here, otherwise the instructions are the same.
