Allow xg home edition run on SG Hardware
What we will do:
Allow XG software installer to run on XG hardware appliances, after removing current partitions (same option as UTM9)
What we are not planning:
We will not allow software install to run trivially on a system currently installed with XG.
We will not make any effort to support on-system wireless, on software installs.
The system will not report itself in any way as an XG appliance, inside the OS.

Hi Allen, will the XG Home for HW Models support the Wireless Module who is integrated on the Sophos SG125w? I have an SG125w @home and this will be fine if the XG home version for HW supports this. :)
Definitely interested in this!!! Any updates?
Plan on running this at our corporate offices and branches. Love to be able to run the hardware on my home network to test out features while not impacting production network.

Silly me purchased an XG115 to run my home on with the home license. Should have read up on it first, but maybe I can be happy again with an update ;-(

Hi Alan, please give us a date, we are waiting ;-)
@Alan Toews When is this expected to be implemented?
Marco Müller commented
the XG Software image includes apparently no driver for the internal access point. Therefore, this solution is of limited use.
The home licenses are Software only so you can't actually use it on the old SG hardware for UTM v9 anyway.
To make it work, you would have to completely flash the hardware and re-install it with a Software Operating System not the Hardware version.
That's the only way I'm aware of making it work and installing a home license on SG/UTM Hardware.
Marco Müller commented
No that is wrong.
It is not possible to install the XG home version (Software) on a SG hardware appliance.

I understood the request that way: (But for me just really nice to have)
Allow the HW-Appliance ISO to install also on older Systems like UTM220 with LCD support.
But at the end "Anonymous" has to elaborate us what he/she really meant.
For people which search for confirmation: XG Firewall works fine on the UTM220 but without LCD Support.
It's already compatible with the SG hardware. What is this feature request meant to be for?
Do you meant the older ASG hardware like UTM220 and the same ilk?
