Q: How can I install XigmaNAS without a DVD/CD drive?
Q: How can I use the XigmaNAS .img.xz file?
A: Currently, the only supported method of installing XigmaNAS is booting and installing via LiveCD/LiveUSB. Please read: XigmaNAS Download Options: to best understand which version you want to download and use.
From LiveCD( .iso )/LiveUSB( .img.gz ) you can:
The LiveCD.iso is used to burn a bootable CD. This CD can be used to run XigmaNAS by storing the configuration on a floppy or flash media. You can also use it to install the OS to other media.
The LiveUSB after you extract LiveUSB.img.gz file can be written directly to flash media using dd in *nix or similar utility like Win32DiskImager in Windows. Once this is done you can run XigmaNAS from this flash media or better install the embedded XigmaNAS platform to the boot media.
The Embedded.img.xz file is for Embedded platform Upgrades only, we don't recommend you use this for anything else.
It is no longer possible to write the image to a CF card/USB Flash Drive or hard drive.
The Embedded.img.xz file is compressed, you don't have to decompressed it to use firmware upgrade on the WebGUI.
If you do not have a CD drive or your hardware does not support a CD drive try the LiveUSB. If you do not have USB ports or your PC will not boot from USB, then you may have to make your own compilation or figure out an innovative, new way to install the system. Here are some alternatives:
