## Installation
## Installing AIMS Desktop
For the most part, the installation of AIMS Desktop is very simple. It uses a graphical installation
tool called Calamares (https://calamares.io) which guides you through the entire installation process.
One aspect to be mindful though, especially if you're dual-booting, is to be aware of the boot method
that your computer uses. Newer computers use UEFI, while older computers use BIOS/Legacy boot mode.
We've made it really easy to identify which method your computer uses to boot up. When you start the
AIMS Desktop live USB disk, it will show you the boot method in brackets.

*Booting in Legacy/BIOS mode to the left, booting UEFI mode to the right. The red underline has been added to these images for emphasis.*
