There is no standard tool for writing images to flash disks, everybody uses what he or she likes. In ROSA the command line tool dd was traditionally recommended for performing this kind of job. However, it can hardly be called user-friendly, and most users would feel at least some discomfort, if not terror, using it. For Windows users the situation is even worse. Granted, there is a dd port for Windows, but it happened to have serious bugs which prevent the resultant flash disks from working properly. All this led to the solution of developing our own tool, ROSA Image Writer.

To install ROSA ImageWriter, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install rosaimagewriter

To upgrade ROSA ImageWriter, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade rosaimagewriter
