Install OS into SD/USB Media


You can only install an SD/USB image into an SD/USB flash drive. If you install other images to an SD/USB flash drive, then the image will not bootup correctly.

There are several ways to install the image into an SD card or USB storage:

  • Etcher has a user-friendly GUI for beginners, and it is compatible with Mac, Windows and Linux. Simply select an image and it will automatically identify your flash drive and burn the image. (Recommended)

How to Use Etcher

  • Alternatively, utilise the dd command from within the Ubuntu Terminal:
$ sudo dd if=/path/to/image of=/dev/sdX bs=8M
