- Under Device, select your USB disk.
- Click Select and select the ISO file for Cado Live.
- Click Start to create the bootable USB Disk.
You now have a USB disk that is ready to image. You can use this yourself, or safely deliver to someone else to image systems for you to access.
Note: Rufus will wipe anything that is on your USB drive. Make sure you have the right drive selected.
Creating Secure Credentials
It is important to use credentials with access limited to only write objects to your cloud storage.
Otherwise, if an attacker finds your credentials, they could compromise data.
Before using Cado Live, you will need to create secure credentials to upload with:
Tip: to save you typing out the credentials into Cado Live, we recommend you save them somewhere securely. So you can access them via the browser in Cado Live itself or via secure USB storage, and copy and paste.
Booting from the USB
Now insert the USB into the target machine, and reboot into the USB.
If the machine doesn’t load Cado Live from the USB, you may need to change your boot order or disable secure boot. Note: don’t forget to change your settings back once you’re done.
You can start the GUI by clicking the “Cado Live Icon” on the desktop side panel.
You can start the command line interface by running “cado_cli” in a terminal window.
Should you require it, the administrator (“sudo”) account is called cado and the password is odac
