For Windows Users

Fedora-liveusb-creator.png
  • Download the latest version of the Fedora LiveUSB Creator from http://fedorahosted.org/liveusb-creator and extract it.
  • Plug a blank target USB flash drive into your computer (minimum 1-gigabyte). WARNING: this procedure erases all data already on the flash drive! Copy any existing data elsewhere first.
  • Launch LiveUSB Creator.
  • Select Sugar on a Stick v2 Blueberry in the drop-down menu on the upper-right side.
  • Adjust the Persistent Storage slider. This enables you to save your work in Sugar onto the device.
  • Select your flash drive as the target and click the Create Live USB button.
  • Wait for the process to finish, then close the LiveUSB Creator program.
  • Stop your flash drive using the Safely Remove Hardware dialog and eject it.


For GNU/Linux Users

Linux Users will use a slightly different approach than Windows Users to ensure maximum compatibility with different distributions. Please follow the instructions carefully to ensure your data is preserved.

  • If you are a Fedora User, run the following command: yum install liveusb-creator
    • Launch LiveUSB the Creator and follow the instructions above.
  • If you use any other distribution, download the image-writer tool from here and the live image from here. Unfortunately, image-writer will not allow you to save your work; it does not create a persistant
    • Open a terminal and become root, either by using su or sudo.
    • Enter the following command: ./image-writer soas-2-blueberry.iso
    • WARNING: If you proceed here, your flash drive will be wiped!
    • The script will output a device name; confirm that it matches with your flash drive.
    • You will be notified once the process has finished.
  • For a Persistent USB see this link:[1]

For Mac OS X Users

The procedure for Mac OS X users is similar to the one for Linux users. Verify that you have an Intel processor, and not a PowerPC (PPC) G3, G4, or G5 processor Apple Macintosh. Mac users should be aware that they may be able to prepare their flash drive on a Mac, but depending on the generation of the hardware used, they may need to use another computer to test whether the prepared flash drive works.
