You want to update your IGEL OS firmware to a higher release version, but the firmware update requires more disk space. Updating devices with less disk space than required leads to an error: Not enough space on local drive.


The size of the new firmware

  • with all enabled software features included
  • with the Adobe Flash plugin partition
  • with the Firefox profile partition
  • possibly with a custom partition
  • possibly with custom wallpaper and bootsplash

exceeds the device's disk space (e.g. 2 GB).


Disable firmware features not needed for productive operation to reduce the size of the firmware:

  1. In IGEL Setup, go to System > Firmware Customization > Features.
  2. Disable features not needed in your environment.
  3. Activate your settings with Apply or OK.
  4. Reboot the device.
  5. Update the device.

Use profiles with UMS in order to deactivate features on a group of devices.
