Writing an image to the SD card
You will need to use an image writing tool to install the image you have downloaded on your SD card.
Etcher is a graphical SD card writing tool that works on Mac OS, Linux, Windows, and is the easiest option for most users.
Download Etcher (https://etcher.io/) and install it. Connect an SD card reader with the SD card inside. Open Etcher and select from your hard drive sdcard image file you wish to write to the SD card. Select the SD card you wish to write your image to.
Review your selections and click 'Flash!' to begin writing data to the SD card
How to write sdcard image directly from the virtual machine
DISCOVERING THE SD CARD MOUNTPOINT AND UNMOUNTING IT
Run lsblk to see which devices are currently connected to your machine.
If your computer has a slot for SD cards, insert the card. If not, insert the card into an SD card reader, then connect the reader to your computer.
Run lsblk again. The new device that has appeared is your SD card (you can also usually tell from the listed device size). The naming of the device will follow the format described in the next paragraph.
COPYING THE IMAGE TO THE SD card
In a terminal window, write the image to the card with the command below, making sure you replace the input file if= argument with the path to your .img file, and the /dev/sdX in the output file of= argument with the correct device name. This is very important, as you will lose all the data on the hard drive if you provide the wrong device name. Make sure the device name is the name of the whole SD card as described above, not just a partition. For example: sdd, not sdds1 or sddp1; mmcblk0, not mmcblk0p1.
