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

The installation of PC-BSD is a fast, easy and straight-forward process with a pretty looking Installer. An easy-to-use wizard will take you step-by-step through the whole process by asking a few simple questions and after a few minutes you will have your system up and running.
