For Windows Users
- If you do this often, you may want to download the Blueberry CD Image once. Then, when it comes to create the flash drive, hit the Browse button and select the downloaded file rather than selecting "Blueberry" from the menu as above.
For GNU/Linux Users
1-)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
sha1sum soas-2-blueberry.iso 8022b68433295f12fbfffa66bf49205851a6a1e0
- Launch LiveUSB Creator and follow the instructions above.
This solution will not create a persistent storage overlay
- 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 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.

If your machine doesn't support booting from USB devices, then download the soas-2-boot.iso and burn it to a CD. ImgBurn is a free Windows application to do so, in case your current computer does not come with such a software.
- Use the Windows Explorer to name your USB flash drive FEDORA (from the Properties dialog for your device), as otherwise, it won't be recognized by the boot-helper CD.
- Put both the boot-helper CD and the USB flash drive in your computer and let it boot from the CD.
