Check Network

Check Hardware Compatibility

Every computer is different. Some don’t support dual-boot, and many require specific steps to enable installation.  Please check that your computer model is on our Certified Models List.  Click on a model for specific notes and information.  If your model is not on the list, there is a good chance that it will still work with CloudReady.  However, uncertified models may have unstable behavior, and our support team cannot assist you with troubleshooting.
