EuroLinux Desktop 9.1 is one of the few Enterprise Linux systems that offers a Live installation image (Live ISO). From now on, you can test a fully functional system without having to install it on your hard drive. The installation itself can be done after testing, directly from the Live ISO.


1. Download the ISO file.
2. Burn the downloaded ISO file to a flash drive:

  • for GNU/Linux systems, we recommend using the command:
sudo dd if=path/to/ELD-9-x86_64-latest-eld-live.iso of=/dev/sdX

/dev/sdX represents the flash drive on which you want to burn the ISO image. Choose wisely so as not to overwrite the system disk.

$ lsblk
NAME                                          MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE  MOUNTPOINT
sda                                             8:0    1     8G  0 disk
└─sda1                                          8:1    1     8G  0 part
nvme0n1                                       259:0    0   477G  0 disk
├─nvme0n1p1                                   259:1    0   600M  0 part  /boot/efi

We chose /dev/sda, as the size matches the size of our flash drive.

  • For Windows® or Mac® systems, we recommend using the balenaEtcher software.

3. Connect the flash drive with the recorded system to the computer on which you want to run the Live system and boot the computer.
