Create a bootable USB Flash Drive

Create USB imaging media

This process should be used to create the image media for any system listed as Generation 8 and 9 appliances, as well as legacy Generation 5, 6 or 7 appliances compatible with 10.2 or newer imaging media.  For legacy Generation 5, 6 or 7 appliances, Create a bootable USB Flash Drive (Alternate Method) may be used as an alternative to using Rufus. Need help determining the generation of your appliance or which ISO to use? See Which Image Media Does My Unitrends Appliance Use?

  1. Download RUFUS (
  2. Obtain the most recent ISO factory image your appliance supports image ISO from here.  Reference Which Image Media Does My Unitrends Appliance Use? for the correct media release.  IMPORTANT!   Imaging media is specific to the appliances listed in this kb. If the incorrect media image is used, you will not be able to complete the reimage process. Make sure you have the correct image before proceeding!
  3. Burn that image to USB using Rufus:  Imaging should be done to a UBS 2.0 device of 4GB, 8GB, or 16GB (See note below).  Be sure to run Rufus as admin.
     IMPORTANT!   This will ERASE your USB device!
