This lesson describes how to create an installation USB drive for image files provided by Endian and to verify the integrity of the image file. The procedure applies to Windows users with XP, Vista, or Windows7 systems.
You need the following to complete this lesson:
- .iso or .img image of an Endian Appliance.
- md5sum of the image.
- An USB Stick.
Some USB sticks may not work with Endian devices. In particular, some Endian hardware device might fail to recognise USB Sticks with size bigger the 2Gb. so you should try with one USB stick with smaller size.
Note: ISO image files
Starting with release 5.0, Endian releases installation images as .iso file, rather than .img. However, the following procedure and suggested software can be used also with .iso files.
It is assumed that you have an Endian image file and its correspondent md5sum checksum on your computer. This lesson takes as example an image of an edge 3.0 and its correspondent md5sum file saved in C:\:
In order to create the Endian installation USB flash drive you need to download an application that allows to burn img and iso images to USB flash drives disks, like win32 Disk Imager.
