In order to install IGEL OS via OSC, the target device must meet the following requirements:

  • 64-bit-capable CPU
  • CPU speed ≥ 1 GHz

    When using multimedia content (e.g. Unified Communications), a Dual Core CPU with at least 1.5 GHz is recommended.

  • Minimum 2 GB RAM; higher RAM size is recommended if you use any of the following:
    • Unified Communications optimizations (uses a client-side media engine)
    • High-resolution graphics output
    • More than two monitors
  • Storage: If the full feature set is applied, at least 4 GB of storage is required. For instructions on how to reduce the feature set, see Error: "Not enough space on local drive" when Updating to IGEL OS 11.08 or Higher.

  • Intel, ATI/AMD or Nvidia graphics chip

    For information about supported graphics chipsets, see the IGEL Linux 3rd Party Hardware Database.

  • USB 3.0 or 2.0 port from which the device can boot (alternatively a DVD drive)
  • Ethernet or wireless adapter

If these requirements are not fulfilled, the full functionality of the device with IGEL OS can not be guaranteed, and technical support will not be provided by IGEL.

Installing IGEL OS via OSC destroys all data on the target device’s mass storage device (hard disk, flash memory, SSD).
