====How to Create a __Full__ Installation on an Internal Hard Disk Drive (H.D.D.)====
- Ensure that the target installation partition has **≥350MB free space** available
- **Create a LiveDVD or [[InstallationFrugal LiveUSB]]**
- **Start the target computer with the ""LiveDVD/USB""**: if the computer does not start/boot from the ""LiveDVD"" it will be necessary to either access a boot menu or the B.I.O.S. so that the computer is instructed to boot with the optical drive or U.S.B. flash memory drive and not any other type of drive; restarting will be necessary in conjunction with using the correct key(s) (see //Appendix// below);
- **Configure the keyboard, locale & timezone settings** {one is offered to do this either during start-up or immediately after}
- **[[http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=29653 Prepare the H.D.D.]]** (optional) using //Menu > System > [[GParted]]//; after any modifications re-start the computer __without saving__ any changes and with the ""LiveDVD/USB"" connected
- **[[http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=29653 Install to H.D.D.]]** using //Menu > System > Puppy Universal Installer//
- **__Remove__ the ""LiveDVD/USB"" and re-start the computer __without saving__**
