OSC works on systems with BIOS and UEFI.

It is essential that your system supports booting from USB storage media or from DVD. This may already be enabled, or you may have to enable it yourself.

IGEL OS 11 supports UEFI Secure Boot. Refer to the manual of your device's manufacturer to learn whether your device supports Secure Boot and how to enable it. Enabling Secure Boot often consists of two steps. First, the boot mode has to be changed to UEFI Boot in the BIOS; after that, Secure Boot can be activated, also in the BIOS.
If IGEL OS fails to boot in UEFI mode, try it in legacy/BIOS mode. IGEL OS will then be installed in legacy/BIOS mode.
For older devices or if you haven't been able to boot the installer at all, use the legacy installer under https://www.igel.com/software-downloads/workspace-edition/ > OS 11 > OS CREATOR > LEGACY.


Third-Party Devices

The required key presses for this may vary from vendor to vendor. However, here are some hints:

 While the device is booting, try pressing [F12] (in general), [F10] (Intel devices), or [F9] (Hewlett-Packard devices) in order to access a list of boot devices and select UD Pocket.

 If the above does not work, access the BIOS settings via pressing [Del], [F1], or [F2] during boot and activate booting from USB storage media and/or change the boot order.

 See the BIOS/UEFI documentation for your system for details of how to boot from USB storage media.

On secured-core PCs (see e.g. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/business/devices?col=secured-core-pcs), it is necessary to change the UEFI boot settings to „Microsoft 3rd-Party UEFI CA“ in order to start the IGEL OS. It is required since by default, the UEFI only trusts Microsoft's 1st-party signing key for Windows, not the 3rd-party signing key that Microsoft uses to sign the IGEL OS.
