I received a complimentary USB stick at SUSECon 2014 in Orlando. It supposedly can install SUSE Cloud. But my USB stick is blank, unformatted. Perhaps we can blame the airline, but I would really like to use this USB stick the way it was intended.

Is there a link to a raw image that I can download and copy to my SUSECon 2014 USB stick?

Thanks

Hi,

Have you tried booting with the USB stick?
In any case (and to be sure that's clear): Windows won't recognize the contents and will only show there is a partition there that's not been formatted.

If that's not it, have a look here : https://www.suse.com/communities/conversations/suse-cloud-4-openstack-admin-appliance-an-easier-way-to-start-your-cloud/

Hi jayvi,

Willem's suggestion is a good one, however if your stick is truly blank please let us know and we can certainly arrange for this image to be downloadable. If you were planning to test SUSE Cloud in a virtual environment and you are OK with the idea of using either VirtualBox or KVM as the hypervisor, then I strongly recommend that you try the Vagrant-based approach which will make life a lot easier:

But please don't hesitate to post here if you have any further problems or questions!

Regards,
Adam
