This Installation Guide is the full, official guide to installing Adélie Linux 1.0 on a supported computer, including special architecture-specific notes and a bootstrap installation from another distribution. It was initially drafted with a section outline in 2015, before the distribution itself was even created. It is hoped by the author that you find this guide easy to understand and read.

Many contributed to the final version of this guide. This includes [[sroracle]] and smauel on the Adélie IRC channel, whom tested the instructions on their machines and reported omissions and corrections.

Please feel free to contact me or the Adélie Linux community if you have any suggestions on how to make this guide better. We'd love to hear from you, and we hope you enjoy using our distribution.
