Getting Lin4Neuro

  1. Download

    You can get the iso image of Lin4Neuro from here.

    Lin4Neuro is 64bit OS, so you need hardware compatible with 64bit OS (You won’t have problems with recent hardware). The size of the iso file is around 3.0GB, so downloading may take some time. Please be patient.

  2. Setting up Lin4Neuro

    After downloading the files, you have some options to setup Lin4Neuro.

    • (Recommended) Use virtualization software packages such as VirtualBox or VMware player
    • Lin4Neuro can be installed both on VirtualBox or VMware. If you specify the Lin4Neuro iso file as DVD media, you can install Lin4Neuro on your virtual machine. I recommend preparing at least 40 GB for your virtual machine.

    • Make a bootable USB flash drive
    • Lin4Neuro can be installed into your USB flash drive. Now Lin4Neuro is around 2GB, but it’s getting bigger and bigger. So I recommend preparing at least 4GB of USB flash drive.

      • Windows
      • If you are a Windows user, use Universal USB Installer. Though Lin4Neuro is based on Ubuntu 10.04LTS or Xubuntu 12.04LTS, the Universal USB installer doesn’t recognize it as Ubuntu 10.04 nor Xubuntu 12.04, so you need to select “Try Unlisted Linux ISO, and specify the iso image you just downloaded in step 2.

      • Ubuntu
      • If you are an Ubuntu user, you can easily create bootable USB from “System” -> “Administration” -> “Startup Disk Creator.”

    • Burn to DVD (easiest, but not recommended)
    • This is the simplest way. Just use “Imgburn” (Windows) or “cdrecord” (Linux) to burn bootable DVD from the iso image. However, I do not recommend this option because the speed will totally depend on the spec of DVD-drive.

  3. Booting Lin4Neuro
    • From Virtualization software

      It is simple to boot from virtualization software. Just turn on your VMware or virtual box and you will see the Lin4Neuro booting in a minute.

    • From DVD or USB flash drive

      It depends on the PC you use, but try to push “F12” or “F11” right after turning on your PC. This prompts the screen in which you can select to boot from USB. If not, you may need to get in th BIOS set up. Please read the instruction of your PC.

  1. when trying to boot from usb i see memtest86. Do I need to select thi soption? Thank you

    • Hi,

      Thanks for trying Lin4Neuro.

      memtest is just a option so that you can check memory for your PC.
      You don’t have to select that option.

      Best regards,
