1. Download the ISO file
Our current version is OMLx 4.2
Our development version is OMLx 4.3
2. Burn it
Burn the downloaded image on DVD or burn it to a USB flash drive.
To transfer the live/installation image to an USB storage device you may use:
ROSA-imagewriter, KDE isoimagewriter, SUSE Studio ImageWriter, dd command line.
Please do not use other usb-writing tools as some Windows tools (e.g. Rufus) truncate the volume name and will break the boot process.
3. Try it and/or install it
Reboot your computer and set it to boot from DVD/USB. Voila! You have got a fully working OpenMandriva system up. OpenMandriva comes as a live system, so there is no need of installation to try it.
Running OpenMandriva Lx in live mode is useful to know if it works well with your hardware.
