Option 1: Install or run live from CD/DVD: From Linux/Windows: Once the download has completed you might consider checking the file integrity before putting it on the install media. I will explain how to achieve this and briefly demonstrate how to burn the ISO image to any CD/DVD recordable type disc.

If you have not started the download yet, it might be a good idea to "save as" (aLive-17.0b3.iso) to some directory location, maybe the Desktop or "My Documents" folder would be a good choice. After the download has completed, will check the files integrity. This will ensure your download completed without error by matching it to the correct MD5:78edf975bf48e5bd48e62cefa9ef49c6. Next, if both MD5's are a match, you're on to using your favorite burning software, but here I'll demonstrate using Nero burning software and one CD-R/DVD-R type disc medium. Lastly, reboot with the CD/DVD inserted, follow the prompts and enjoy this truly ultimate Office/Multimedia rich Operating System. TIP: If you prefer to use another burning software besides Nero, we highly recommend CDBurnerXP.

Option 2: Install or run live from USB flash drive: From Linux: you can use either of these two commands: 'dd if=aLive-17.0b3.iso of=/dev/xxx' or 'cat aLive-17.0b3.iso >>/dev/xxx' where 'xxx' might be sdb, sdd, etc.
From Windows: Download the utility Win32ImageWriter, extract to some directory, run the utility and navigate to where the ISO image 'aLive-17.0b3.iso' is located, click the ISO image, choose 'Save'. Now, select your USB flash drive from the list under 'Device', click "Write" image to USB drive. That's it, you're done.
