Imaging Computers at CF's and Institutions with Nov21:

You will need a docking station with USB ports and a reset USB. The most up to date reset USBs are labeled Nov21.

If necessary, image a device:

  1. If necessary, backup student home folder to a USB drive before imaging computers

  2. Dock the laptop (powered off) with a reset USB plugged into the docking station

  3. Boot the computer, at the American Megatrends BIOS screen press Fn + F12 key repeatedly. You should be asked to enter a password. Enter the BIOS password.

  4. Boot to the UEFI USB Drive. After that the process is pretty automatic but takes between two and five hours to finish.


Running the First Setup Script to finalize the new image (v10 images):

The Black (USB) Docking Station is required here as well as a USB device (formatted as exFat) with the jconfig utility (v15) on it. Additionally you will need the following information for the setup process: the student name and JRA number, the new jadmin password, the current time and date, and the Wi-Fi SSID and Password for the network that students are approved to access. (Jconfig_V15 Download)

  1. Power off and dock the Securebook to a Black (USB) Docking Station.

  2. Power on and log into the jadmin account

  3. Open a terminal by clicking the terminal icon

  4. Enter the following command: sudo bash first_setup.sh (Similarly you should be able to press the up arrow a couple times until the command populates then hit enter)

  5. Follow the on screen text prompts entering the information you collected before starting this process

  6. After finishing the script (the last step should have been entering the Wi-Fi password), reboot the Securebook

Note: Passwords should not contain special characters and SSID's are case sensitive, so be careful when setting and inputting these as they are common pitfalls during the initial setup process.

  1. With the Securebook rebooted, log into the jadmin account

  2. Plug into the black docking station the exFat USB device with the jconfig utility (v15) on it

  3. Open a terminal by clicking the terminal icon
