Microsoft Windows has no built in programs for copying drive images to drives. You will need to use an image program.

The best program we have found for this is alex's USB Image Tool


You will also need to decompress the image. The best tool for this is 7-zip

  1. Decompress the image using 7-zip
  2. The USB Image Tool requires files to be named .img not .raw so you will need to rename the image file
  3. Run alex's USB Image Tool (as administrator) and copy the image to a CF card of the type that fits into your ARM unit.

Note : Use the fastest CF card you have. It will make Linux boot faster and run faster.
