This package follows onto the included USB stick creation utility shipped with ArcaOS(link is external) 5.0.2, allowing you to create a bootable USB ArcaOS 5.0.2 installation stick without a running OS/2 system.
It is now possible to create (write or restore, actually) the image of a bootable ArcaOS USB stick under practically any major operating system, from Windows 2000 through Windows 10, most modern Linux distros (2.4 kernel and newer), and Mac OSX, as well as from OS/2 versions from Warp 4 and newer, all versions of eComStation, and of course, from another ArcaOS installation.
In addition, it is possible to “build” the USB stick image natively, from the tool located in the AOSBOOT directory of the ArcaOS ISO. This requires a running OS/2 system, with REXX capability.
Installing the Operating System using USB sticks will be very fast!
