Make a BerryOS live USB drive on Windows (in case of USB image)
1. Use Winrar or 7zip to extract the tar from the RAR.
2. Use Windows Image Writer 0.1, select the archive image (IMG) and then select the USB drive in the menu.
3. Press Write.
4. Restart the computer with USB.
Make a BerryOS live USB drive on Mac (in case of USB image)
1. Extract berry-x.xx.img and run the following command in the same directory as the file, where X is the device name of your USB drive. Be sure to use the device name, not the specific partition on the device (use “sdb” NOT “sdb1”). If you're unsure of the name of your device, try “sudo fdisk -l”. This shows all partitions of all attached drives, mounted or unmounted, including your filesystems. The USB drive is typically one of the last devices shown. If you don't have fdisk, and are using Ubuntu or another Debian-derived distro, type the command “sudo aptitude install gparted”. Once that installs, you can use Gparted (located in your System Administration menu) to figure out the correct partition of your flash drive. Alternatively you can use the “mount” command to see a list of storage devices and their mount location. (WARNING : A simple mistake with dd can lead to severe data loss. Always double check!!!)
2. sudo dd if=berry-x.xx.img of=/dev/X bs=4M . Writing the 1.9GB image can take up to 20 minutes.
3. Once the command finishes, you can then boot from the USB drive.
Make a BerryOS live USB drive on Linux (in case of USB image)
1. Prepare USB drive
* Plug in your USB
* Find Disk Identifier; wherever you see X in this guide, replace it with your unique Disk Identifier
* Open terminal and execute sudo diskutil unmountDisk diskX (remember to substitute X for the unique Disk Identifier - i.e. 1)
* BE VERY CAREFUL to accurately copy the Disk Identifier. If you get it wrong, the dd command below will quickly and irrevocably overwrite one of your drives, possibly your main boot drive.
2. Prepare BerryOS Image
* Download the build to your desktop
* Execute cd Desktop
* Execute unzip -x berry-x.xx.zip
* You now have an uncompressed image on your desktop
3. Write to USB
* Execute sudo dd if=/path/to/disk.img of=/dev/rdiskX bs=4m (remember to substitute X for the unique Disk Identifier - i.e. 1)
* Type your Mac OSX user account password when prompted
* Sit back and wait ~30-90 minutes (check progress)
* You'll know it's done when it gives you your shell prompt back
4. Once it's finished you can remove your USB and boot from a normal PC or try to boot from your mac
How to make Berry Linux CD from ISO file ?
How is Berry Linux started (in case of ISO image) ?
To start the CD, set up the BIOS of your computer to boot off the CD, put the CD in the drive, and power up the computer. If your computer doesn't support this option, you have to use a boot disk. You can create this disk from the image in BERRY/boot-fd.img on the CD.
Note: If you want to use English mode, type "berry lang=us" at the first boot screen.
