&lt;p&gt;AIMS Desktop can be downloaded from &lt;a href=&#34;https://desktop.aims.ac.za/download&#34;&gt;https://desktop.aims.ac.za/download&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;AIMS Desktop is a large download (over 3GB), if you&amp;rsquo;re reading this from a mobile connection,
you might want to download it on a broadband connection instead.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;AIMS Desktop installs a new operating system to your computer. It can be installed alongside
an existing system such as Microsoft Windows, Apple macOS, BSD or another GNU/Linux system.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Installation Media:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;You will need at least one USB disk that is at least 4GB large. Preparing it as an installation
disk for AIMS desktop will overwrite all the data that&amp;rsquo;s on there, so if you have important files
on that USB disk, you should move it to a safer location before writing it to disk.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Prepare your system:&lt;/p&gt;
