I just entered the IOT area and have to migrate an environment from vmware vsphere 5.1 to 5.5 for support. Problem is that I work in mac environment and now am learning how to use terminal after 30 years staying away from it (Unix 5.3). Trying to copy an ISO file downloaded from vmware.com to a USB disk was daunting. I downloaded etcher because I am moving a PLC and Java project programmed the old way from under windows 7 on VMware to a Java environment - in other world upgrading my industrial IOT to modern supportable IIOT. Thats why I am here. The Balena open source not world looks good. The etcher was a plus.
Problem I have now is that I have to create lots of different bootable OS’s on usb to help migrate our code from Win7 in Vmware 5.1 to Win10 in Vmware 5.5 then to 6., RasberriPi 2 to rasberriPi 3, Win 7 to Win 10. SO I ma building a lot of usb and sd cards. I may have experience 30 years ago burning images and editing them. the media and layouts are so different.
Will using BalenaEtcher to flash ISO images on other OS’s work. Ima getting error messages that the USB is not formatted in way to accept ISO image.
