The Endless OS Installer for Windows will ordinarily download an Endless OS image as part of the process of creating an Endless OS installation or Endless OS USB Stick.
However, it is possible to download the image files separately, or take them from another computer where the Endless OS Installer for Windows has run. The installer will then be able to proceed using these existing image files, without having to undergo a download.
The image files (usually a
.img.xz file and a
.asc signature) must be placed in the same folder as
endless-installer.exe. If you have used your web browser to download all of these files, they will likely already be in the same Downloads folder and you will not need to move them.
Place the relevant files in the same folder, as described above.
endless-installer.exe and navigate to your preferred installation or USB option as normal.
At the point where you would be asked to select a specific version, you will see a step such as the following, which confirms that you will use the existing image file that is already downloaded:
Continue the installation process as normal.
