3.2. Preparing for Installation

Acronis Cyber Infrastructure can be installed from

  • IPMI virtual drives
  • PXE servers (in this case, time synchronization via NTP is enabled by default)
  • USB drives

3.2.1. Preparing for Installation from USB Storage Drives

To install Acronis Cyber Infrastructure from a USB storage drive, you will need a 4 GB or higher-capacity USB drive and the Acronis Cyber Infrastructure distribution ISO image.

Make a bootable USB drive by transferring the distribution image to it with dd.


Be careful to specify the correct drive to transfer the image to.

For example, on Linux:

# dd if=storage-image.iso of=/dev/sdb

And on Windows (with dd for Windows):

C:\>dd if=storage-image.iso of=\\?\Device\Harddisk1\Partition0
