Install and run Vyatta NOS on hardware


For more information on installing onto a hard disk or other persistent device, see Ciena vRouter Hard Disks and Persistent Devices Installation Guide.

The Vyatta NOS installs and runs on most standard x86 servers and PCs. The system installs from LiveCD onto a variety of persistent devices, including a hard drive, USB memory stick, and compact Flash.

You install the system from LiveCD, which you create before installation. The installation process uses LiveCD as the source image, formats the device on which the system is being installed, installs the system, and, if possible, preserves configuration from previous installations. When the installation is completed, you reboot your system and the newly installed system runs.

Note: Not all hardware supports the ability to boot from a USB device or compact Flash. Check the BIOS of your hardware to see if this feature is supported.
