Download Instant WebKiosk/UB, with persistence, for USB keys (no CD-ROM). Please first read instructions below & FAQ.

Instant WebKiosk/UB boots from USB flash devices: in order to write the ISO file to an USB stick (extract it from ZIP), Windows users can use Win32DiskImager, while Linux users can make use of dd (not UNetbootin) and Mac OS X users should follow this guide.

Help with Win32DiskImager can be found on Sabayon website or on YouTube. Open files with *.* mask.

Help with dd (run as root or with sudo) follows:

insert the USB stick
tail -f /var/log/messages or tail -f /var/log/syslog
locate device file, for example: /dev/sdx
umount /dev/sdx
dd if=path/to/iwk.iso of=/dev/sdx bs=1M
(always refer to the whole disk, so do not use /dev/sdx1 for example)

Once you have successfully written the ISO file to an USB stick, you have to plug the USB media into the PC, make sure your PC boots from USB devices and restart.

Hard-disk install | running Instant WebKiosk inside a VirtualBox VM | PXE boot: please see F.A.Q. page.
