The Build Appliance is a virtual machine which enables you to build and boot a custom embedded Linux image with the Yocto Project using a non-Linux development system. For extensive usage information, see the documentation.
The Build Appliance boots to Hob and can build an image.
Known issues & caveats
As a virtual machine, the Build Appliance is not designed for actual development. It may have issues with networking depending on proxies and firewalls.
Unzipping using the default Windows extractor may fail. In this case use 7-zip to unzip instead.
