Mageia leveres som ISO-aftryksfiler som skal skrives til tomme CD- eller DVD-diske.
Alle ISO'er kan også startes fra et USB-drev.

Til at dumpe en Mageia installations-ISO på en USB-pen kan du prøve en ud af flere værktøjer:

  • Til Linux, IsoDumper, tilgængelig i repo. Eller et hvert andet værktøj baseret på dd. Unetbootin understøttes ikke.
  • Windows - se venligst flere muligheder på vores wiki.

"Dumping" an image onto a flash device destroys any prior file-system in the partition; access to any data not destroyed will be lost, and partition capacity will be reduced to the image size. In other words, all prior data on the device is at risk.

Hvis du har UEFI, er der en procedure i wikien.

Live Media and Network Installation Media have been updated to support new hardware. They are called Mageia 6.1 release to distinguish them from the original Mageia 6 release. Use these if the original Mageia 6 iso images are unable to boot on your hardware, or if you would like more up-to-date software while running in live mode. Please take a look in the documentation for the appropriate media.There's no need to reinstall if you have Mageia 6 installed and already have the latest updates installed.

Live ISO's let you try Mageia 6.1 without installation. You can run Mageia directly from a DVD or USB device, and try it using one of the graphical user interfaces such as GNOME, Plasma or Xfce.
