(Sorry for the inconvenience)

While the PC-BSD® installer is very easy to use, installing a brand new operating system can sometimes be a daunting task.

Before you begin, there are a few things you should check to ensure that your system is ready to install PC-BSD®.

  • Are you dual-booting or installing over the entire drive? If you are dual-booting you will need to ensure that you have a primary partition available. Refer to the section on Dual Booting.
  • Have you backed up your important data? Any irreplaceable data, such as emails, bookmarks, or important files and documents should always be backed up to an external media, such as a removable drive or another system, before installing or upgrading any operating system.

If you wish to determine if your hardware is detected by PC-BSD®, start an installation and click the Hardware Compatibility button in the first screen of the installer.

If you would like to use a portable version of PC-BSD® instead of performing an installation, use PC-BSD® Live Mode.

Should you run into an issue with your installation there are many different ways to get help.
