 +===== Official releases - x86 - CD images =====
 +
 +Trying MINIX 3 is easy. You just download the compressed CD image file, decompress it, and burn it to a CD-ROM. This CD is a live CD. You can boot your computer from it and a few seconds later you log in as root. You do not have to install MINIX 3 to the hard disk to test it. If you decide you want to install it, you then have to create a hard disk partition for it (1GB to do anything useful) and start the live CD again and run setup. Please note that on x86, MINIX3 **does not support USB** at all (yet!). Proceed as follows:
 +
 +  * Read the [[:​usersguide:​doinginstallation|installation guide]].
 +  * If you do not know how to partition a hard disk, print and read this short [[:​usersguide:​diskpartitions|tutorial]].
 +  * Please take our [[https://​docs.google.com/​forms/​d/​17k6HAj8_w91OzYzS-CfYt6FtdGZlLFEw2MYLWoIGLHo/​viewform?​usp=send_form|short survey]] after installing 3.3.0.
