Updating bios compaq evo
Instructions Download the image, and either burn it to a DVD or write it to a USB stick. Insert the DVD or USB stick into your PC or Mac, and turn it on.
On a PC, you will generally need to enable booting from optical drive or USB stick in the BIOS, and you will have to ensure that the optical drive or USB stick is ahead of all other drives in the boot order.
We are aware of an issue on some modern Macs (including, annoyingly, mine – but not Liz’s), where the machine fails to identify the image as bootable.
We’ll release an updated image once we’ve got to the bottom of the issue.
The intention has always been that the Raspberry Pi should be a full-featured desktop computer at a price point.
In support of this, and in parallel with our hardware development efforts, we’ve made substantial investments in our software stack.
Because we’re using the venerable i386 architecture variant it should run even on vintage machines like my Think Pad X40, provided they have at least 512MB of RAM.Back in the summer, we asked ourselves one simple question: if we like PIXEL so much, why ask people to buy Raspberry Pi hardware in order to run it?There is a massive installed base of PC and Mac hardware out there, which can run x86 Debian just fine.Simply download the image, burn it onto a DVD or flash it onto a USB stick, and boot straight into the familiar PIXEL desktop environment on your PC or Mac.Or go out and buy this month’s issue of The Mag Pi magazine, in stores tomorrow, which has this rather stylish bootable DVD on the cover.
