Installing SV-OS from an image

This article is about how you can create a bootable system drive from an image provided by Seervision. The result will be a drive that is needed for a fully operational system.


  • A computer with an adequate internet connection to download the image (~30GB in size).

  • An NVMe to USB adaptor or any other type of adapter that allows you to connect an NVMe drive to your computer as a data drive (not a system drive).

  • Balena Etcher version 1.5.120 or higher.


  1. Download the image to your local machine. The link will be provided by Seervision and is valid for at least 14 days.

  2. Connect the drive to your PC and start Balena

  3. Select the image.

  4. Select the connected drive as a target

  5. Press flash and confirm the flashing if prompted.

  6. Depending on the type of drive, the size of the image, and the computer’s performance, this process can take from a few minutes to ~1h.
