# Remarks for IOT installation
Date: 05th January 2019
## Attempt with RAW
I have downloaded the raw image from here:
and used as described here:
xz -d [filename].raw.xz
to uncompress it.
1. The first attempt was to use gnome-boxes on F29, but this does not allow
to select raw files.
--> Is there another way to pursue with boxes?
2. Renamed the raw file to filename.iso, but this does not seem to be valid
since gnome-boxes said
that the resulting image is corrupted.
## Attempt using ISO image
I have downloaded the iso image from here:
The installation under boxes was successful.
I have successfully tried the rpm-ostree commands as described here:
The description for the installation via gnome-boxes is not clear enough.
We need to point to the correct image (here iso) or we need to give a
clearer explanation on how to install the IOT edition using the raw image.
To a standard user like me, this is not clear at the moment.
The rpm-ostree command description is very limit and one should reference
to appropriate docs
and maybe add some explanation why this is useful in case of IOT.
Peter if time permits I'm happy to support you with updating the docs. I
will have a look at asciidoc in the next few days. I guess that the PR
should be reasonably small to allow a fast review.
