Install pre-built Ubuntu Core on a device

We create pre-built Ubuntu Core images for several testing platforms. These images are a way to explore Ubuntu Core. Canonical produces official images for the following platforms.

We recommend first users try pre-built Ubuntu Core images in Raspberry Pi or Intel NUC, as these range of devices are easy to use and widely accessible.

Once you have downloaded the respective image, follow one of the next options:

Install Ubuntu Core using Raspberry Pi Imager
Use a graphical tool to simplify the process of flashing the Ubuntu Core to a storage medium. This method works on Windows, macOS, and Linux, and is accessible for users of all skill levels.

Install Ubuntu Core with the dd command
Use the dd command to write the Ubuntu Core image to the storage medium. This approach offers more precision and control over the flashing process but requires a higher skill level.
