Rookie USB stick

The computer provided in the Rookie Kit of Parts comes preloaded with an existing Windows install. The computer should not be reimaged and no image is provided for doing so Veteran teams may not need to image their machines, but should see the section on Image Download if they wish to do so.

Rookie USB Stick

As the computer comes pre-loaded with Windows, the Rookie USB stick does not contain an image as it has in prior seasons. Instead it contains a copy of the LabVIEW DVD contents and pre-downloaded copies of Eclipse for C++, Eclipse for Java and Game Specific DLC.

Teams should follow the Getting Started with the Control System pages, and simply skip download steps for components they already have on the USB drive. Note: To use Eclipse, teams will need to download the Java JDK in addition to the FRC specific plugins.
