8 Deploying the raw image

Note: Installation using the raw image does not create a boot EFI entry.

During the deployment of the raw image, the image of the system is just copied to the selected disk. Therefore, an EFI boot entry is not created (like it normally would if the system is deployed using an installer). You might need to manually boot your system using the EFI shell by selecting the SLE Micro boot loader. After the first boot, you can use efibootmgr to create the boot entry. efibootmgr is available by default in the deployed image.

To deploy the raw image to your machine, proceed as follows:

  1. Download the raw image and decompress it:

    > xz -d DOWNLOADED_IMAGE.raw.xz
  2. Copy the decompressed image to the device where SLE Micro will run:

    > dd if=DOWNLOADED_IMAGE.raw of=/dev/sdX
  3. If needed, plug in the configuration devices you prepared in Chapter 7, Preparing the configuration device.

  4. Boot the machine.

  5. Without the configuration device, JeOS Firstboot prompts you to configure the system as follows:

    1. Confirm the configuration.

    2. Select your keyboard layout and confirm your selection.

    3. Read the license agreement and accept it.

    4. Select your time zone.

    5. Enter a password for root.

    6. Confirm the root password.

    7. Accept the statement about SLE Micro registration.

  6. You can log in to your system and perform additional steps as described in Chapter 10, Post-deployment steps.
