The Intel® Galileo Board forgets sketch after powering down. Start your Intel Galileo Board from the SD card to resume the sketch after powering down.

Follow the steps below to set up your SD card, and start your Intel Galileo Board from the SD card.

  2. Download LINUX IMAGE FOR SD for Intel Galileo from Software Downloads - Drivers.
  3. Format the SD card to FAT32.
  4. Using WinZip, unzip the zip file to the SD card.

    The content of the SD should have the following files/folders at the root directory:

    /boot/grub/grub.conf
    bzImage
    core-image-minimal-initramfs-clanton.cpio.gz
    grub.efi
    image-full-galileo-clanton.ext3
