1.3. Preparing for Installation from USB Storage Drives

To install OpenVZ from a USB storage drive, you will need a 2 GB or higher-capacity USB drive and the OpenVZ 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=openvz-iso-7.0.0-3469.iso of=/dev/sdb

And on Windows (with dd for Windows):

C:\>dd if=openvz-iso-7.0.0-3469.iso of=\\?\Device\Harddisk1\Partition0
