Hardware & Software Requirements
(1). Pre-existing Windows 10 device or other operating system (x64).
(2). External HDD / USB flash drive / cloud storage to backup personal files.
(3). USB flash drive for Windows live recovery media (16gb or larger recommended).
(4). Decent internet speed to download and install RebornOS ISO.
(5).Software to burn RebornOS live install ISO onto USB flash drive.
(6). USB flash drive for RebornOS live install media (4gb recommended).
(1). Back up all pictures, documents and other personal files onto an external storage location. This can be a external HDD, a USB flash drive, or even onto your choice of cloud storage. Just ensure that all your files are backed up so as to prevent data loss during the RebornOS installation process.
(2). Write down or acquire any product keys for paid software to prevent loss of software if something does fail during the installation process.
(3). Be prepared with two USB flash drives. One drive will be used to create the live recovery media for Windows, while the second drive will be used to make the live media for RebornOS.
(4). Decent or fairly fast internet is needed to download the full live install ISO for RebornOS. The ISO itself is 2.1 GB roughly and depending on internet speeds the install will require a solid internet connection during the install process. Install can take 30 min. and up depending on internet speed.
Backup Windows Operating System
This is a practice that is recommended regardless of if you are installing a new operating system or just trying to recover your existing Windows.
(1). You can find the Recovery drive creator by opening Control Panel (Windows key + S)
(2). Type in Control Panel
(3). In the Control Panel you can either search for Recovery in the Search Content box OR change View by: Category to View by: Large Icons
(4). Open Recovery
(5). Click Create a recovery drive
(6). Insert the USB flash drive (16 GB or <)
(7). WARNING: Make sure nothing important is on the flash drive before starting this process!
(8). It's recommended to check the box stating Back up system files to the recovery drive before clicking next.
(9). Make sure you know which drive is your flash drive before continuing.
(10). Proceed to follow prompts to create recovery media. This may take some time. When done proceed to safely remove the USB flash drive.
Downloading the RebornOS ISO
If you are starting with Windows as your main operating system software is needed to create the RebornOS Live USB. Popular software for this include programs such as Rufus or Etcher. To do so, simply download either of the tools and then, for Rufus simply follow the instructions here. For Etcher, simply select the desired ISO and the drive, and then hit Flash!
Another option if you are using a Linux operating system is to use the following commands in terminal to create the live USB of RebornOS:
sudo su cd Downloads cat RebornOS.iso > /dev/sdX
/dev/sda2@/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi:Windows Boot Manager:Windows:efi
sudo pacman -S ntfs-3g
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
GRUB_DEFAULT=0 GRUB_TIMEOUT=5 GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=“RebornOS”
GRUB_DEFAULT=0 GRUB_TIMEOUT=1 GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=“RebornOS”
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
