Try before Installing
The Ubuntu Studio ISO is a live image, which means you can boot it and use all the default applications without installing it. Just create a bootable USB stick and try it out.
Boot from USB Stick
- Download the image above. Use software like UNetbootin to create your bootable USB stick (included in Debian/Ubuntu repositories). If using Universal USB Installer, use version 126.96.36.199 or above.
- Make sure to set your BIOS to boot from USB. Commonly, the USB stick is recognized as a bootable hard disk, and to boot from it, either set it first in the BIOS boot order, or find a way to select which device to boot from using a key stroke while starting the computer (not all motherboards support booting from USB stick. Also, not all USB stick are bootable). More information on this here.
- Boot from your newly created bootable USB stick and follow the instructions.
A fresh installation from USB is the recommended installation method. The USB image is about 5.3 GB, and can be used to create a bootable USB stick.
Check ISO for corruption using checksum
After downloading the ISO, make sure to check it for corruption. Several methods are available, we recommend using SHA256. Go to the download directory, and use the command line program sha256sum. The output should be identical to the respective checksum found at the link below the downloads above. Read more about checking SHA256 sums.
