(Sorry for the inconvenience)

The first graphical installer screen, seen in Figure 3.2a, indicates that the installer successfully loaded and is ready to present you with its options.

Figure 3.2a: Welcome and Language Selection Screen

Starting on the left-hand side, the icons in the bottom navigation area allow you to:

  • read that screen's "Help" text
  • use the onscreen keyboard
  • switch between the US keyboard layout and a user selected layout
  • abort the installation
  • navigate to a previous or upcoming screen

This initial screen allows you to select your language. The menus in PC-BSD® have been translated to several different languages and you can see the status of your native language at the PC-BSD® Translation Site[1]. If your language does not show 100% translation at this website, it means that not all of the menus have been translated yet and that the untranslated menus will instead display in English. You are welcome to join the PC-BSD® Translators Mailing List[2] if you would like to assist in translating menus to your native language.

By default, PC-BSD® menus will display in English, unless you select another language in the drop-down menu in this screen.

Template:Word-note small screens may not display the entire installer window, which means that the buttons at the bottom of the window are hidden and inaccessible. There are two solutions for this situation: press Alt while dragging the window with the mouse, or press Alt+N to select the next button of the window.

When you are finished, click the next "Next" button to go to the next installation screen.
