How to Copy/Pull and Push
Firmware
In this chapter you will:
1. Configure a USB Key - Configure a USB key (that will copy/pull firmware from a
source device and then push that copied firmware to other target devices).
2. Use the Configured USB Key to Copy/Pull Firmware - Use the configured USB key
for a one-time firmware copy/pull (you will boot from it on a pre-configured source
device to pull the firmware).
3. Use the Configured USB Key to Push Firmware - Use that same configured USB
key to push the firmware onto as many target devices that you want (you will boot from
it on other same model and flash size target devices).
IMPORTANT NOTES:
•
Non-PXE Images - When a Non-PXE image is used to image, the thin client flash size
must be greater than the image size (for example, if a 512 MB image is converted to a
Non-PXE Image, then the thin client flash size must be 1 GB to accommodate the boot
agent).
•
USB Key Size - Must be greater than the flash size you are pulling; unless you use the
compress feature of the tool to fit your flash contents - be aware that compression can
take a significant amount of time depending on the size of your flash contents (USB
key size up to 16 GB has been tested—see "USB Keys - Troubleshooting Boot
Issues").
•
USB Key is Reformatted - During the USB key configuration process, the USB key
will be reformatted.

In this step, you will boot your source device from the configured USB key so
that the USB key will pull the contents from the source device onto the USB
key.
Caution
Be sure your source device has the configurations you want to pull and use
on other target devices.
1. If you are changing the BIOS Setup Utility on the source device (for example, you are
not using the recommended one-time boot menu process because your device does
not support the one-time boot menu option), at this time you must configure the source
device to boot from the configured USB key as described in "How To Configure Your
Device to Boot from a Configured USB Key." If you are using the one-time boot menu
(recommended), you can skip this step.
2. Power off the source device.
3. Attach the configured USB key to the source device.
4. Power on the source device and boot from the configured USB key. If you are using the

brands have been tested with the Wyse USB Firmware Tool. If you experience problems
booting from a configured USB key, it is recommended that you try a different brand of
USB key. The following list of USB keys have been successfully tested with the Wyse USB
Firmware Tool:
•
Kingston Data Traveler 4 GB
•
Kingston Data Traveler 8 GB
•
Kingston DT Ultimate 32 GB USB 3.0
•
SanDisk Cruzer micro 2 GB

SanDisk Cruiser Flash Drives - Troubleshooting Partition Issues
Problem: How can I properly use a SanDisk Cruiser flash drive to image supported
devices using the Wyse USB Firmware Tool? (KB17735)
Solution: SanDisk flash drives come with support for U3 (for details on U3, see
http://www.u3.com). When you initially use these drives, you are prompted to select the
use for the drive: Apps and Storage or only Storage. If you select the Apps and Storage
option, the drive will create two partitions, one of which is identified as a CD and is a read
only partition. This partition sometimes prevents the Wyse USB Firmware Tool to properly
prepare the USB key for imaging a device. To resolve this problem you can do one of the
following:
•
Go to http://www.sandisk.com, search in the SanDisk Knowledge Base for document
2550, and then follow the instructions in the documentation.
•
Go to http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp, select USB Flash
Drives from the Select Product Type list, click Find Driver, select U3 LaunchPad
Remover, click Continue, and then download and use the U3 Launchpad Remover
according to the instructions.
