Can I update Jetson without a Linux based host machine?

Is JetPack TK1 really only available to run on Linux system? I only have Windows based host machines.

Please tell me I don’t need to buy another computer just to allow me to update the code on the Jetson board.

You can download VMWare Player or Virtualbox and create an Ubuntu Desktop VM. It works perfectly on Win7/x64. I’ve used both but VMWare Player seems to have better USB support which results in quicker flash times.

Thanks. I’ll check them out.

Try to keep the file system underneath the VM as a native linux file system, e.g., ext4. NTFS will very likely cause fail.
