&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 a USB disk that is at least 4GB large. Preparing it as an installation

on that USB disk, you should move it to a safer location before writing the installer to disk.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;If you&amp;rsquo;re familiar with the dd command, you can use that from your Linux or macOS system to write
the command directly to a raw USB device.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;If you&amp;rsquo;re using Windows and don&amp;rsquo;t have access to a Linux device, you can download the Rufus USB
tool at &lt;a href=&#34;https://rufus.akeo.ie/&#34;&gt;https://rufus.akeo.ie/&lt;/a&gt; which makes writing USB disks from Windows really easy and that
tool has been confirmed to work with AIMS Desktop media.&lt;/p&gt;
