myServer 6 can be purchased pre-installed on controller hardware which is the easiest to get up and running. It is also available as a software download which requires the user to follow multiple steps to install. Inbetween these two, it is also available as a software image pre-installed by Allonis on a USB drive.
To install the USB:
The Raspberry Pi4 needs to have firmware that will boot from a USB drive. Recently manufactured Pi's are already flashed to that version firmware.
To update your older Pi, follow the instructions HERE.
Once the firmware is installed, the myServer 6 USB drive is installed in the USB3.0 ports (the blue ones) as those ports are high speed.
The USB drive will only plug in one direction. If one way doesn't go, try flipping the drive around and try again. It does take a litte push even when the correct direction is chosen. The Samsung USB drive we typically use fits VERY tight. We push the USB side to side a bit on first install to spread the side pins on the Pi USB3.0 port. Be very careful as it is easy to damage the Pi.
Once you have the USB stick installed, power up the Pi via it's USB-C connection.
Continue configuring the system by following the documentation HERE.
