its meant to be done on a clean install which would mean trashing your win7 (so don’t do it) take my advice get a usb pen, run unebootin or pendrive linux and write the iso img to the pen, then boot from usb and try out live linux ( you could do any distro really but better to stick to debian/ubuntu based ones like ubuntu/kubuntu/mint)

then when you install, just install it alongside windows7 from the installer menu, and reboot,setup the network and install steam. Its actually faster than SteamOS and you get bigpicture mode which is almost as completly useless as steamos tongue.gif just kidding

yes of course. the linux install usually installs a GRUB menu with a selector for the two

but be careful, and read the instructions first

You can't run both at the same time unless one is in a virtual machine. You can have both installed to the same hard drive though. I would recommend installing Virtualbox or VMWare Player and trying out some Linux distros in VMs before attempting a dual boot install. One wrong partitioning option during the install could leave you without an OS. This risk is eliminated when using a virtual machine with a virtual hard drive.

Yes but you can't partition a mounted disk, I keep a gparted disc in my laptop bag as well as a live AV, Windows 7, Arch, and 10.9.

If you want to run the official SteamOS session along with the custom SteamOS compositor in Ubuntu, you can easily do so by installing two packages. Once you install these packages, you'll be able to directly log in to the SteamOS session from the LightDM login screen.


a nice way of choosing how your system runs on startup ohh and it will help people who struggle to install Native steamOS by just installing Ubuntu and then adding this extra bit.

Valves 'new' (read altered from existing) compositor is used for the SteamOS session

If i have windows 8.1 installed on an ssd, and 2 striped data drives, and an open unused drive
1) ssd OS
2) data drive 1
3) data drive 2
4) unused drive

if i were to remove 1, 2, and 3, install steam os on 4, then put 1, 2, and 3 back after the installation
would the first three drives work just as they used to? and remain separate from the steam OS?
