    USB Flash Drive Preparation using USB PrepTool and USB Flash Installer v3.21 for Bustled Fiery Controllers for the DocuColor 240/242/250/252/260,

    Xerox 700/700i Digital Color Press, Xerox Color 550/560, WorkCentre 7300, 7400, 7500 and 7700 MFP Series

    (Serial Number Prefixes: WUP, AXA, ERB, MMX, BP2, XYY, LUA, UAF, and WXN)

    1. Purpose: This document will explain how to properly prepare your USB Flash Drive or Thumb Drive for the purpose of loading software on the Bustled Fiery Controllers using the USB Flash Installer v3.21 or the USB PrepTool. The USB method is a more reliable and quicker way of loading software than the PWS method. 2. Terminology: System Software The actual System Software CDs or DVDs required to load the Fiery controllers using a PWS. Software Image The software that resides on a USB Flash Drive after prepping with the USB PrepTool. Support DVD DVD with Software Image files from prepared USB Flash Drives. 3. Requirements:

    3.1 - USB Flash Drive (Kingston DataTraveler 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB models preferred) 3.2 - USB PrepTool v1.1, v1.2, or v1.3 CD (refer to Tables 1 and 2 for proper usage) 3.3 - USB Flash Installer v3.21 CD (iso image file from GSN Library 10731 or 10039) 3.4 - One of the following System Software DVDs

    DC240/250 v1.1 (kit 701S45118) DC240/250 v1.2 (kit 701S48272 sent to the field May 2008) DC242/252/260 v2.0 (Kit 301K18330 delivered with the Server) Xerox 700 DCP v1.0 SP1 (kit 301N42850 delivered with the Server) Xerox 700 DCP v1.5 (kit 301N45190 delivered with the Server) Xerox 700i DCP v1.0 (kit 301N61700 delivered with the Server) Xerox Color 550/560 v1.0 (kit 301N55100 delivered with the Server) Xerox Color 550/560 v1.1 (kit 301N60870) EFI Fiery Network Controller for WC7300 v1.0 (kit 301K20330 delivered with the Controller) EFI Fiery Network Controller for WC7400 v1.0 (kit 301N45120 delivered with the Controller) EFI Fiery Network Controller for WC7500 v1.0 (kit 301N57610 delivered with the Controller) EFI Fiery Network Controller for WC7700 v1.01 (kit 301N51740 already contains USB drives)

    3.5 - The System Software CDs for the DC240/250 v1.1 and v1.2, and the DC242/252/260 v2.0 do not work with the USB PrepTool, these versions of System Software is compatible with the USB Flash Installer v3.21 instead. 3.6 - A new version of USB PrepTool, v1.3 is included with the Integrated Fiery software kits for the Xerox Color 550/560, 700i Digital Color Press, and the EFI Fiery Network Controller for WC7500 MFP. This version is only compatible with these versions of Fiery Software. 3.7 - Please refer to the compatibility matrix on the next page to ensure that you are using the correct Tool/Software to prep the USB Flash Drive.

    Table 2: Compatiblilty Matrix for EFI for WorkCentre Products Note: You must have one of the original System Software discs listed in Step 3.4 to properly prepare the USB Flash Drive. Using the Support DVD(s) provided by the Hotline to prepare the USB Flash Drive will not work as they will contain ONLY the Software Image files.

    4. Preparing the USB Flash Drive:

    4.1 USB Prep Tool Method (v1.1, v1.2, and v1.3) 4.1.1 Install the USB PrepTool application on the PWS. Follow the instructions from the Installation and Service Guide for the EFI Fiery for WC7400 beginning on page 12. 4.1.2 Prepare the USB Flash Drive as illustrated below.

    Figure 1: USB PrepTool v1.1 Interface as an example 4.1.3 Once the process is complete, your USB Flash Drive is ready to be used. 4.1.4 USB Flash Drive Preparation times using the various System Software DVDs:

    X700 DCP v1.0 SP1 1 DVD, about 8 minutes X700 DCP v1.5 1 DVD, about 8 minutes X700i DCP v1.0 1 DVD, about 6 minutes Xerox Color 550/560 v1.0 1 DVD, about 8 minutes Xerox Color 550/560 v1.1 1 DVD, about 9 minutes EFI Fiery Network Controller for WC7300 v1.0 1 DVD, about 25 minutes EFI Fiery Network Controller for WC7400 v1.0 1 DVD, about 25 minutes EFI Fiery Network Controller for WC7500 v1.0 1 DVD, about 7 minutes

    Note: In most cases, the PWS will no longer be able to access any USB ports after prepping a USB Flash Drive, simply reboot the PWS to restore the ports. 4.2 USB Flash Installer v3.21 Method 4.2.1 The USB Flash Installer method NO LONGER works with the new Dell E6420 PWS, the

    instructions below will still work with the older PWS. 4.2.2 If you do not have a USB Flash Installer CD, download the iso file from the GSN at

    Libraries 10731 or 10039. 4.2.3 You will need a full version of CD burning software and select Burn Image to Disc.

    4.2.4 Format the USB Flash Drive (this method does not format the USB Flash Drive). 4.2.5 Configure the PWS to boot from the CD/DVD Drive.

    4.2.6 Insert the USB Flash Installer CD in the CD-Drive of the PWS and reboot. 4.2.7 After installing Linux files, the program will prompt for a USB Flash Drive and valid system software discs. 4.2.8 Follow the prompts to prepare USB Flash Drive and reboot PWS.

    5. Loading different versions of software: Once the USB Flash Drive has been prepared, you can use it to load System Software on the other controllers using the Support DVDs from the St-Laurent Hotline. The Hotline prepared the USB Flash Drive for each of the other software versions, and subsequently burned the files to DVD. The USB Flash Drive needs to have the software files deleted, and, depending on what controller needs to be reloaded, have the proper files copied to the USB Flash Drive. Note: The installation files can also be found on the Office Color Suppport DVD, p/n 701P49948. 6. Caution: It is critical that one file is not deleted. Figure 2 shows the hidden file LDLINUX.SYS because the option of viewing hidden files has been enabled in Folder Options. If this file is mistakenly deleted along with the others, it will render the USB Flash Drive unusable for the purpose of installing system software and you will have to prepare the drive again using the USB PrepTool CD. Follow Figure 3 on the following page to disable the ability to view hidden files.
