Follow the guide below to see which file you should download.

New installs

If you're just starting with XigmaNAS, you'll want one of these install disc images:

Bootable USB stick

  • XigmaNAS-x64-LiveUSB-GPT-xx.x.x.x.xxxx.img.gz
    This is the 64-bit install/LiveUSB image. It is intended to be written to a USB Flash drive, and then booted to perform the initial install. Most new users will probably want this file.

  • XigmaNAS-x64-LiveUSB-MBR-xx.x.x.x.xxxx.img.gz
    This is the 64-bit install/LiveUSB image for systems that can't boot to a GPT USB stick using the file above.

Bootable CD

  • XigmaNAS-x64-LiveCD-xx.x.x.x.xxxx.iso
    This is the 64-bit install/LiveCD image. It is intended to be written to a CD, and then booted to perform the initial install.

Upgrades to existing XigmaNAS systems

These files are only needed if you have an existing XigmaNAS system that you want to upgrade the firmware for.

  • XigmaNAS-x64-full-xx.x.x.x.xxxx.tgz: This is the full upgrade image for 64-bit full install systems. It is only useful if you are performing an upgrade from WebGUI. This file is NOT what you are looking for otherwise. First system install needs to be done by LiveCD/LiveUSB only!

  • XigmaNAS-x64-embedded-xx.x.x.x.xxxx.img.xz: This is the upgrade/CF image for 64-bit hardware. It is only useful if you are performing an upgrade from WebGUI. This file is NOT what you are looking for otherwise. First system install needs to be done by LiveCD/LiveUSB only!
