Creating a Compact Flash Installation disk using WinImage

  • Download the compressed installation disk image onto your personal computer and decompress the zipped file. This will result in a single Virtual Disk Image file (.vhd).
  • Insert a 1GB or 2GB Compact Flash into your personal computer’s card reader. Please note that this process will overwrite any data on the Compact Flash card.
  • Launch WimImage and select ‘Restore Virtual Disk Image on to Physical Drive…’ in the Disk menu.
