Obtaining and preparing the oMG Software Image

1. Obtain a disk imaging application from the Internet such as Win32DiskImager.

2. Download the attached oMG Software image (see Available Software Images below).

3. Obtain a 4 or 8 GB USB stick and insert it into your PC. WARNING: its contents will be overwritten in the following steps.

4. Run the disk imaging program.

5. Select the image file.

6. Select the device (USB drive) inserted above.

7. Click “Write” and wait for the process to complete.

8. Remove the USB stick from the PC and use it to upgrade your oMG using the steps below.

Important: do not open the USB stick on a PC after writing to it using the disk imager program, otherwise the oMG will not be able to read data from the stick. 


Installing the oMG Software image

1. Unplug the power cable from the oMG.

2. Insert the pre-imaged USB flash drive into one of the USB ports on the oMG.

3. Apply power to the oMG and wait (do not remove the USB flash drive).

4. The oMG should now boot into installation mode. This process can take up to 12 minutes to complete. Observe the LEDs on the oMG as follows:

    •     Booting: YELLOW LED slow flashing, GREEN LED off
    •     Software Update: YELLOW LED solid, GREEN LED blinks three quick flashes every two to three seconds
    •     Firmware Update: RED LED fast flashing.
    •     Installation finished: both YELLOW and GREEN LED solid

5. After seeing both YELLOW and GREEN LEDs solidly lit, remove power from the unit and remove the USB flash drive. If both LEDs are not solid, please contact Support.

    WARNING: Do not remove power until both lights are solidly lit otherwise the hard drive/CF drive can become corrupted beyond recovery. 

6. Reconnect power to the unit and then wait for it to fully boot up.
