install image

Installs a binary image of the system.

install image

Operational mode

Use this command to install a binary image of the system.

After the installation is completed you can add multiple image versions to the same partition by using add system image, and you can then choose which version to boot by using set system image default-boot. This functionality allows you to move easily between different versions of the system.

If you have a new system and want to install from scratch, you can boot LiveCD or LiveUSB and run install image to install the image on LiveCD or LiveUSB to the disk. install image operates similarly to install system —it creates and formats a new disk partition and then installs the image to the partition while preserving the system configuration.
