I am having the same problem. I am using the official memory stick. Sometimes it falls over when formatting and sometimes as it tries to transfer files.

I assume there must be a fix.

Hi All,

 

Please confirm which operating systems you are running. If you have access to a computer running Windows 7 (or before) please try this, and let me know if this works.

 

We have developed a new installation method which involves simply dragging the file onto the USB stick rather than installing it. This doesn't only solve this problem, but means you don't have to be an administrator, and you don't have to be using Windows either.

 

We're using this on FLX currently, and we plan to bring this over to all ZerOS consoles by the end of the year. However, to get that functionality to work on yor consoles, there will have to be a "normal" installation method too.

 

All the best,

 

Jon

Hi Tbeunders,

 

Please could you take a photo of the error you're seeing and either post it here, or email it to me (my address is in my signature below).

 

Thanks

 

Jon
