Installing Tails OS

Let's move on to installing Tails OS in the following OSes.

Installing Tails OS in Windows

Installing Tails directly from Windows is not currently possible, but it can be done by using two USB sticks, and installing Tails on one, and then the other, as shown in the following steps:

  1. Install Tails on one of the USB sticks, the intermediary one, using the Universal USB Installer (I mentioned it in Chapter 4, Installing a Linux Virtual Machine).
  2. In the Universal USB Installer application interface, choose to install from the Tails OS ISO file you downloaded.


  1. After installing Tails OS on the first USB stick, restart your computer and boot from the USB stick. You should boot into Tails, after a few seconds.
  2. Now, plug in the second USB stick, go to Applications Tails | Tails Installer (in Tails OS), and install Tails on it.
  3. After the installation process ends, remove the first USB stick, restart the computer, and boot from the second USB stick.

You'll boot into Tails OS.
