Securebook Setup

You will need a docking station with USB ports and a purple reset USB.

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. Press enter on the first Clonezilla screen and yes up to 3x to confirm the imaging process. The process should run at 2GB/min and take an hour or two.

Prepare Setup USB:

This process was last updated on 03/02/2021, the files were last updated 03/02/2021:

Prepare a setup USB containing the following files. You can create this setup USB from your internet-connected Windows computer. This zip file below should be downloaded into the "root" or top-most directory of the USB and extracted. You CAN use the SAME reset USB used for imaging devices. If you use a different USB, it must be formatted exFAT or FAT32. One USB can be used many times over. USB preparation is only done once.

  • Zip Package: (download) -- right-click on the link on the following pages if the Zip package doesn't auto-download

  • Extract zip package to root directory of the USB, not a new folder:

  2. Boot your Endless Securebook while the Securebook is on the docking station

  4. Open the "terminal" app by typing "terminal" into the search bar and pressing enter

  5. In the terminal, type:

bash /media/jadmin/USB_NAME/first-setup.sh

hint: using the "tab" key will autocomplete words in the line above, this prevents you from having to type lots of characters or find the USB_NAME

follow the on-screen prompts

hint: every clear Securebook should be configured to RACHEL-5G WiFi signal.

You do NOT need to be within the WiFi signal range nor do you need to be on a WiFi-enabled docking station for this to work.
