How do I run Endless OS in a Virtual Machine?

First, you’ll need to download and install a virtual machine manager if you don’t already have one. We suggest using VirtualBox as it is freely available for all major desktop platforms.

 

1- Download the ISO image, via Torrent file, to the version of Endless OS that you want to run.
