Currently you can only install Wayne OS in a USB flash drive since we don’t support local installation yet, and we will offer this service soon
A Windows PC (after XP edition) to run Wayne OS Installer
A USB flash drive (8GB or 16GB or 32GB)
For how to install Wayne OS, you can refer here
Try to turn off background programs (ex: Google drive file stream, backup & sync, Antivirus SW, Security SW)
Some network devices/firewalls don’t allow unverified traffic.
You can ask the network administrators or try it in another network environment
If you get “error 433: a device which does not exist was specified” message, try to restore your USB flash drive (refer Q7) and install again
It could happen due to low quality USB flash drives but it is a rare condition.
We suggest trying to wipe out (refer Q7) the USB flash drive first.
However if it is still can’t be recognized, we suggest asking the seller/manufacturer to exchange/refund the USB flash drive (if it is in warranty period).
In some conditions, USB flash drives can be broken due to manufacturers using the low quality controller/memory chips
You can run Command Prompt as administrator in Windows
Tip: FAT32/exFAT file systems are recommended for USB flash drives. The FAT32 supports max 32GiB volume size and max 4GiB file size. The exFAT supports over 32GiB volume size but it doesn’t work on Windows XP (need additional driver).
Most of the time it is due to HW compatibility issue.
If you find that you can’t connect WIFI, we suggest using ethernet and inform us.
Due to many wireless lan card models sometimes there are some models that are not compatible yet. However we are always working to improve WIFI compatibility.
You can refer HW compatibility here and if you still can’t access WIFI, please inform us your PC WIFI chipset and we will try to add in the future release.
The OS performance depends on the USB flash drive quality
We currently do not support Android apps yet
We currently do not support Netflix yet
Since this function is no longer supported on Chromium OS open source project, this function is no longer available in the local Files App. However you can access Google Drive through the browser.
The USB flash drive life span might be decreases as every flash memory devices (ex: SSD, USB flash drive, SD card, etc) are consumables. So when you write/delete something on the flash memory, the life span will be decreased gradually.
