Default Image and install new image

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I am using the Edison for Arduino. The edison have a default linux system when I buy it.

But I can't see any file on the "Edison disk", the disk is empty but when I open the console, a linux system is working..

When I updated the image, I follow the sparkfun tutorial as below.

https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/edison-getting-started-guide# updating-the-firmware-image Edison Getting Started Guide - learn.sparkfun.com

I removed all file on the "Edison disk" and then copy and paste the new image file into it.

I have 3 questions for it:

1. Why I can't see any default linux system file on the "Edison disk" ?

2. When I copy and paste the new image file into the "Edison disk", should I "reboot" the edison so as to enable the new image?

But after I reboot it, the user name doesn't change...It is mean the update is fail?

3. How to get the default linux system of edison? I found that the default linux system can work well on Wifi and BLE, but the image download from other side sometime doesn't work well.

Many thanks

Hao

Hello haodong,

The Yocto OS (Linux) doesn't appear in the Edison's drive when you connect it to the PC. Actually, the Edison's drive should remain empty so you shouldn't see anything when you connect the Edison to your PC.

The Edison's drive was used to copy the image files and flash the Edison with the Yocto image; however this method is no longer used. There have been new images and a new method to flash them. This method uses a software called Flash Tool Lite. With this software you can flash the latest Yocto image in the Edison without copying the files in the Edison's drive. I recommend you to check the following document for additional details:

I also recommend you to flash your Edison using the Flash Tool Lite. You can download it from the following site, under the Flash Tool Lite section: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads IoT - Intel® Edison Board Download | Intel® Developer Zone. The latest Yocto image can be downloaded from the following link: http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25028/eng/edison-image-ww25.5-15.zip http://downloadmirror.intel.com/25028/eng/edison-image-ww25.5-15.zip
