Bootable disk / USB stick

With a bootable disk or USB stick, you do not need to install anything on your computer. Instead, you will start your computer from the disk or USB, and you will have instant access to the environment.

Create a bootable DVD

  1. Download the disk image.
  2. Burn it on a blank DVD.

Create a bootable USB stick

It depends on your computers operating system on how you can create a bootable USB stick.

Once you have your bootable medium, insert it into your computer and restart your computer. The device needs to be in the computer during the restart in order to be detected as bootable medium.

If your computer does not boot from the medium directly, you might need to restart your computer again and go into the boot menu. Please check your operating systems instructions on how to do that.

It may take a few minutes for the operating system to start. That depends largely on the speed of your drive.

Use the image

You may want to print out these instructions or have them available on a different device, especially when you created a bootable disk, because you will not be able to access them otherwise.

Please wait until Firefox is loaded and you see a Mahara site. This may take a few minutes as the site tries to load the latest code for Mahara.

Click on the Firefox title bar to remove the keyboard shortcut window information.

Mahara is set up in Firefox. If it doesn't start automatically, you can start it from the left-hand side of the screen:

  1. Open Firefox
  2. Enter "http://localhost/" into the address bar if the Mahara site doesn't open automatically.
  3. Log into any of the accounts that are listed on the homepage of Mahara. They all have "mahara" as password. the usernames are:
  • anna (site administrator)
  • paula (student with most content and SmartEvidence collection set up)
  • james (institution administrator)
  • percy (institution staff)
  • petra (institution staff)
  • polly (user)

When you shut down the image in your VM or shut down the operating system, everything will be reset to the default content that is provided in the Mahara instance.
