2.5.8. VT AIR Reinstallation¶
Your VT AIR device comes pre-installed with its operating system. Should you ever need to reinstall the OS though you can download it from your Portal (see Downloads for details). Make sure to download the file for your specific model/architecture.
18.104.22.168. USB key preparation¶
Once downloaded transfer the ISO file to a USB key using either the tools provided by your computer’s OS (macOS, Linux) or a specific program like LinuxLive USB Creator (Windows). Make sure your USB key is empty before using it since it will be formatted in the process and it’s at least 2 GB in size.
Start LinuxLive USB Creator and choose the USB key that you want to use for the installation. Click ISO and select the file that you downloaded from the Portal. Then click the lightning icon. The software will format your USB key and write all the data to it. Once it is finished you can unplug the USB key and close the prgram.
Use the command
to see all connected drives. search for your USB key and note its name (e.g. /dev/sdb).
Eject the disk
sudo umount /dev/sdX
and write the data to the USB key
sudo dd bs=4M if=path/to/file.iso of=/dev/sdX conv=fdatasync status=progress
with path/to/file.iso being the downloaded OS file and /dev/sdX being the usb key (e.g. /dev/sdb). Be very careful with this since this command wipes all data of the drive. Make sure to select the correct /dev/sdX!
Wait for the command to finish and eject the USB key.
Use the command
to see all connected drives. search for your USB key and note its name (e.g. /dev/disk2).
Eject the disk
sudo umount /dev/diskX
and write the data to the USB key
sudo dd bs=4m if=path/to/file.iso of=/dev/diskX conv=fdatasync status=progress
with path/to/file.iso being the downloaded OS file and /dev/diskX being the usb key (e.g. /dev/disk2). Be very careful with this since this command wipes all data of the drive. Make sure to select the correct /dev/sdX!
Wait for the command to finish and eject the USB key.
22.214.171.124.4. USB Key¶
Insert the USB key with the new OS in your VT AIR’s USB port.
126.96.36.199. VGA Monitor Installation¶
Connect a monitor and keyboard to your VT AIR device. Reboot the device and press F8 during the boot process to get into the boot menu. Select the USB key and boot from it.
In the installer choose Install.
The installer runs without any user inputs.

The RJ45 NIC LEDs are configured the following way:
|Green Light Only||100Mbit/s Speed|
|Green and Yellow Light||1000Mbit/s Speed|
2.5.10. Operational Data¶
