This page explains what you’ll need to run Celadon on bare metal.
- Most of 5th, 6th, 7th, or 8th SoC Generation Intel® Core processors and Intel® Celeron® processors
- Intel® Xeon® E3 processor family
- Intel® Xeon® E5 processor family
You can try out the CaaS experience on your Intel® architecture (x86) hardware platforms with UEFI BIOS and Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) for IA-32, Intel® 64 and Intel® Architecture (Intel® VT-x) and Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) for Directed I/O (Intel® VT-d) features enabled.
Depending on your bare metal target device, enter the BIOS firmware menu by pressing the hotkey (e.g. F2, DEL, or F12) at the start of system bootup.
Enable Intel® VT-d and Intel® VT-x features in the Security configuration of the BIOS if it is not enabled.
Disable the Secure Boot feature in the BIOS for live testing the CaaS features at the early stage. Secure Boot should be re-enabled later.
Do not forget to restore your previous BIOS settings after the test. Disabling the Secure Boot feature may result in the previously installed OS failing to boot.
Refer to the Build the OS image section in the Getting Started Guide to build the CaaS images.
The following CaaS image types are generated at the end of the build:
The GPT disk image for live booting on the target device. Refer to the Live Boot section to write the CaaS GPT image to a USB key, and to boot Android from that USB key.
The compressed flashfile package contains the kernelflinger executables Refer to the Run Celadon on Intel® NUC section to unzip the content of the package to a USB key, and install the CaaS images from the UEFI Shell.
