In order to try Qimo, you will have to burn the ISO file to a CD-R/CD-RW as a CD Image, not as a regular file. Some CD burning software can do this, othes can’t. If yours doesn’t have an option to treat the file as an image, you can get a free program here
that will.Once you have the CD created, just leave it in your CD drive and reboot your computer. When Qimo first boots, it gives you the option to try it from the CD, or install it to your computer. Trying it from the CD means that nothing on your computer will be changed, you can reboot without the CD and everything on your computer will be exactly as it was before. This is the easiest way to try Qimo, though it will run a bit slower this way.
Be Careful: Qimo isn’t like the programs you can install on Windows! Installing Qimo means you are putting a totally new operating system on your computer, and it may cause problems (or totally replace) your installation of Microsoft Windows.
