 +====== Redcore INSTALLATION ======
  
 + * For using the device where you have the Redcore image (* .iso) you must start BIOS setup and change settings;
 +  * BIOS  is a type of firmware used to perform hardware initialization during the booting process (power-on startup) on IBM PC compatible computers, and to provide runtime services for operating systems and programs
 +
 +**BIOS basic function:**
 +  - initialize and test the system hardware components
 +  - loading a boot loader or an operating system from a mass memory device
 +  - a consistent way for application programs and operating systems to interact with the keyboard, display, and other input/​output (I/O) devices
 +
 + * The desired setting, in this case, refers to the boot priority for our device that starts the system and this can be done at startup by pressing a key mentioned on the PC for this purpose;
 +
 + * Most common keys for this action are: DEL, F2 or F11, depending on the type of BIOS your PC is using ;
 + * Once you finished setting BOOT from a USB stick, SD card or DVD, save it and your computer will start Redcore LIVE session from your device;
 + * After starting a menu will appear, where you can choose one of the options:
 +
 +       - **Start Redcore Desktop 1702 Canis Major** (in this case) - to enter the live session;
 +       - Advanced Options - this option are settings about ACPI and Virtualbox;
 +       - Language Selection - here you can choose the language used in Redcore;
 +       - Keyboard Selection - change the keyboard format;
 +
 + * After starting the LIVE session you choose your username and password:
 +
 +      - User:     ​**redcore**
 +      - Password: **redcore**
