: By default, this guide assumes that you already have your OS installed on your target platform. If you want to install an operating system on your target platform yourself, you'll need a bootable USB drive containing the OS you want to install. A USB drive with 4-8 GB should be sufficient.
You can let Arduino Create help you install the OS, or do it manually. If you would like to install the OS image as part of this setup process, steps to do so are included in Installing an OS with Arduino Create*
, so keep your USB drive handy. If you'd like to install the OS yourself, you'll need to download the image from the appropriate location listed below, then write the image to your USB drive using your file writing program of choice:
• For the Gigabyte GB-BXBT-3825* or Dell Wyse 3290* gateways, you need Ubuntu* 16.04 LTS (Server version): https://www.ubuntu.com/download/server
