Local Berryboot repository on network share

Instead of letting Berryboot download operating system image files straight from the Internet, it is also possible to have a local repository in your own network.

Steps required:

1) Obtain image files

Download the Operating System image files you wish to offer on your local repository from the Internet to your local computer.

2) Put the downloaded files on a Windows file sharing (CIFS) network share

3) In the Berryboot “Add OS” Windows, press the “Network settings” button, go to the tab “repository” and enter the IP-address of your server, and the name of the share, in the format:


If no username and password is provided, Berryboot will try to login to the network share as “guest”
The settings are saved in berryboot.ini on the FAT partition of the SD card.
