OS Installation

Operating system installations aren’t the most complicated thing in the world, however there are programs that make this process easier for you. A program that we highly recommend for this is called ‘Rufus’. Rufus is a tiny application that allows you to create bootable USB’s with ISO images, meaning you can easily install an OS if it’s an ISO file. We have included some screenshots on which settings to use. First of the on the top drop-down menu make sure you are using the correct USB so you don’t format the wrong one!

Next there is a button for selecting the ISO image, this button is marked by the red arrow. Click this button to bring up another window, you can then select the desired ISO image. Before you click the start button make sure that any data already on the USB is saved somewhere else because this process will format the USB meaning all data will be removed. Once you have done that click the start button at the bottom of the window, you will get a warning message about formatting the USB, click OK.

Once you click OK the process will start, this usually takes a few minutes to complete depending on the size of the file, once it is completed you can remove the USB and install your OS.
