Next: Starting the PC-BSD Installation



PC-BSD can be installed from the installation media directly onto a hard drive or into a virtual machine using virtualization software such as VmWare Hypervisor or Virtualbox. You can also try PC-BSD without installing it by selecting Live Mode when you boot the installation media.

The PC-BSD installer has made installing PC-BSD as easy as installing Microsoft Windows. The installation of PC-BSD is a fast, easy and straight-forward process. The graphical installer will take you step-by-step through the whole process by asking a few simple questions. Within a short period of time, your PC-BSD system will be installed, configured, and ready to use. This section of the Handbook will walk you through a default install which will be suitable for most users. Users who wish to go beyond a default installation will also want to read the Advanced Installation Topics section.
