System Image
Developer(s)Technical Support Group
Installed version23.0 / 20 November 2015; 5 years ago (2015-11-20)
Operating systemWindows 7, Ubuntu

Our Lab Computers are installed with a System Image to unify software and driver versions and configuration in all BSI and DCC labs. This allows researchers to easily transfer their experiments from one lab to the other in case of booking constraints, or conduct research in multiple labs simultaneously with identical settings. The TSG will periodically update this image to improve performance and security.
During the update, the Windows (C:\) and Linux system drives will be wiped. Make sure to save your data on the E:\ drive, which will remain untouched, and backup your data to your network drive as soon and often as possible.


The system image for the lab computers installs a dual-boot configuration with Windows 7 and Ubuntu (Linux). Users can choose which operating system to start when booting the PC. The storage drive is partitioned into system drives and data drives. As mentioned above, the system drives will be wiped during a system image update. The data drives can be used to write data from your experiment to, but are not meant as long-term storage.
