The RancherOS ISO file can be used to create a fresh RancherOS install on KVM, VMware, VirtualBox, or bare metal servers. You can download the rancheros.iso file from our releases page.

You must boot with at least 1280MB of memory. If you boot with the ISO, you will automatically be logged in as the rancher user. Only the ISO is set to use autologin by default. If you run from a cloud or install to disk, SSH keys or a password of your choice is expected to be used.

Install to Disk

After you boot RancherOS from ISO, you can follow the instructions here to install RancherOS to a hard disk.
