Creating the SD - On windows, extract the *.gz first.

Postby ruwan » Tue Mar 11, 2014 8:26 pm

Hi All,

I just received my Parallela Board and started creating the bootable SD card. Downloaded the image found at ftp://ftp.parallella.org/sd_images. I used Win32 Disk Imager as instructed in documentation, didn't seem to boot up. I thought the the app would extract the content automatically, to make the SD but seems it didn't.

So I extracted the gz file and used the *.img file inside to create the SD card using the above program, this time it worked.

Hope this helps anyone who did the same. May be added to the instructions?

Thanks,

Ruwan.

Adapteva, you should use "zip" for Windows users.
(only on the Method #1:(easier))
