Install from usb stick

I tryed to install UCS from a usb stick but failed. I prepared the stick with “ISO to USB”. When i boot the server it will not start the installation routine, instead he show a grub promt. Does anybody know ho to do this?

Good Afternoon Ralf2201,

I know, when preparing the stick with “ISO to USB”, you need to select one of the following File system: FAT, FAT32, exFAT or NTFS. Actually, non of these filesystem is supported as a boot filesystem in Linux.

Debian recommends Win32DiskImage. For a clear guide on using it, see the link below:

If you have to use a linux machine instead of a Windows system, then follow the steps:

  1. Download the Image to a folder you know:
  2. on the command line enter something similar to below, tuning to match the location of the image and the address of the USB
    # dd if=/home/Download/UCS_4.2_2.iso of=/dev/sdx

Dear Anna,

With the Win32Disk imager it works very well.
