After choosing the language setting on the relevant screen, it would be appropriate to select "Pardus Live" to open an environment that you can use to test your own computer with the Pardus operating system. Of course, if this media is running on a USB stick or similar environment, it will obviously be slower in speed, so it will be more efficient after the actual installation.

When "Pardus Live" is opened, an empty GNOME like the one below will welcome you. Then you can switch to the Installation Wizard with the "Install Pardus" icon on the desktop.

Then comes the most important step, how to do the disk partitioning. If you are using another operating system on your disk or if you want to partition manually, you have to do it manually, but in this article we will apply the situation on a blank disk. Therefore, you need to select the disk you want to install in the "Manual Partitioning" option.

It warns you again that all data on the disk will be deleted when you make the selection and proceed. Indeed, this is the most important step. If you have data to lose, you need to be careful. If you're using a virtual machine, it won't delete anything from your real physical machine. After this step, if you haven't made any adjustments to your disk, it will ask one more question and just say "Yes".
