MinerOS Installation

Installing MinerOs is a quick and easy process for all categories of users

First of all, you will need any USB flash drive or SSD/HDD drive of at least 8 GB and a mining rig with 2 GB + RAM.

There are 2 installation methods: classic and express method

  • Express method is quick and super simple. Recommended for use!
    • You need to register and enter the MinerOs user panel.

MinerOs registration

    • Go to the Download Image page from the top menu and click "Download". After that, the download of the personalized MinerOs image as archive will begin. Authentication data will be automatically embedded in it, and the image will be compressed on the fly.

MinerOs personal image

    • Wait until ~850Mb is downloaded and unzip it using the gunzip command (in Linux) or rar (in windows).
    • Burn the image to a USB flash drive using dd if=mineros-x.xx.img of=/dev/sdb bs=10M status=progress (Linux tool) or HddRawCopy (Windows tool).

RawHddCopy tool


  • Classic method is for advanced users. It will require manual configuration file changes.
    • Download the public image, unzip it and burn it to a USB stick using the gunzip command (in Linux) or rar (in windows).
    • Burn the image to your storage device (minimum 8 GB) using HDDRawCopy (for Windows users). Linux and Mac users can use the dd command to write a RAW image to disk. Something like dd if=mineros-x.xx.img of=/dev/sdb bs=10M status=progress.
    • Go to MINEROS_DISK:\auth.txt and set your email address as an authentication token (email field).

MinerOs auth

Other fields in auth.txt:

  • name - the default name of the rig (you can change it in the user panel later).
  • pin is a security token. You can set your own pin code, but do not forget to set the same number on the user panel! The default is 12345.
  • uniq - this field should be empty for new rigs. If you already have an added and configured rig in the user panel and you want to assign the current OS to it, then place the token from the settings tab of this rig in the UniqId field in the user control panel.

The network.txt file is the settings for your network. By default, DHCP is enabled. If you need to set a static IP, you can edit this file. Wi-Fi is not yet supported, sorry.

After recording the image using any of the above methods, go to your MinerOs personal account.

Launch your rig and you will see that it is online in the user panel. Then you will need to create a mining task and configure overclocking, if necessary. Have a good mining!

If you cannot start the rig, check the BIOS settings:

  • Turn on 4G encoding
  • Update the BIOS to the latest version, if possible
  • Turn on legacy boot mode
  • Turn off virtualization

After you have successfully burned the MinerOs image to your media, proceed to the article on setting up the first rig.
