Creating a USB Boot Stick

I want to install RancherOS on my PCEngine Board and created therefor a a USB Bootstick with Rufus but regardless what options i choose the RancherOS.iso dosn’t boot.

Any tips on this?

Ok got my own solution.

Installed RancherOS in Virtualbox. Coneverted Disk with vboxmanage to raw and used tinylinux to boot on my pcengine board and installed the raw image with dd on my SSD.

It works :slight_smile:

That’s both hilarious and ridiculous. I ended up using Rufus to make the usb disk bootable, though I’d have preferred something a little more scriptable (cli support is on the cards at least).

Sorry for the zombie-post, but there really isn’t a lot of up-to-date information on how to get RancherOS to a point where it’s running, and more importantly, useful.

to make a bootable usb key, I use dd if=rancheros.iso of=/dev/sdb

To create a bootable USB ,i have tried a lot of methods ,

How do you set up your BIOS Settings? perhaps , you need to burn iSO to USB again
