To get Joli OS on your device, the simplest way is to use the Joli OS Windows Installer which makes it possible to install Joli OS easily and alongside Windows. However, if you want to create a native partition for Joli OS, or simply if your device is not running Windows, you will need a USB key or a flash disk.
Read more about the differences between the two here.
The Joli OS ISO is about 700MB, so you will need at least a 1GB USB key. Please be sure that you have no files saved on your key or disk as they will be deleted during the key creation process which takes less than 5 minutes.
Please make sure you back up all the data on your device before proceeding with the installation.
Insert your Jolicloud USB key in your device.
Hit the power button on your device and when you see the first loading screen, press Esc or F2 depending on your device (more info). This will ensure that the device boot order tries the USB drive first.
Boot from the Jolicloud USB key.
Select Install Joli OS in the menu.
Using our Partition Install, you are in control. You can decide exactly how much space you want to allocate to Joli OS. You can keep your existing OS and create a new partition, or you can choose to replace your existing OS altogether. If you still want to test Joli OS without installing it, please be aware that all your settings will be lost once you shut down your device and remove the USB key.
