3.2. Preparing for Installation

Virtuozzo Infrastructure Platform can be installed from

  • IPMI virtual drives,
  • PXE servers (in this case, time synchronization via NTP is enabled by default),
  • USB drives.

3.2.1. Preparing for Installation from USB Storage Drives

To install Virtuozzo Infrastructure Platform from a USB storage drive, you will need a 4 GB or higher-capacity USB drive and the Virtuozzo Infrastructure Platform distribution ISO image.

Make a bootable USB drive by transferring the distribution image to it with dd.

Important

Be careful to specify the correct drive to transfer the image to.

For example, on Linux:

# dd if=storage-image.iso of=/dev/sdb

And on Windows (with dd for Windows):

C:\>dd if=storage-image.iso of=\\?\Device\Harddisk1\Partition0
