SteamOS Install Guide

How do I install SteamOS?

There are two different installation methods for SteamOS. The recommended method is the Default Installation method, which is a pre-configured image-based install using CloneZilla. The other method uses Debian Installer, which allows for customization after an automated install step. Please choose one of those methods below.

WARNING: Both installation methods will erase all content on the target computer

Default Installation

You will need to create a SteamOS System Restore USB stick to perform this install. The image provided here requires at least a 1TB disk.

  1. Download the default SteamOS beta installation
  2. Format a 4GB or larger USB stick with the FAT32 filesystem. Use “SYSRESTORE” as the partition name.
  3. Unzip the contents of to this USB stick to create the System Restore USB stick.
  4. Put the System Restore USB stick in your target machine. Boot your machine and tell the BIOS to boot off the stick. (usually something like F8, F11 or F12 will bring up the BIOS boot menu).
  5. Make sure you select the UEFI entry, it may look something like “UEFI: Patriot Memory PMAP”. If there is no UEFI entry, you may need to enable UEFI support in your BIOS setup.
  6. Select “Restore Entire Disk” from the GRUB menu.
  7. When it is complete it will shutdown. Power on the machine to boot into your freshly re-imaged SteamOS.

Custom Installation

The second method is based on the Debian Installer. It requires multiple configuration steps:

  1. Download the custom SteamOS beta installation
  2. Unzip the file to a blank, FAT32-formatted USB stick.
  3. Put the USB stick in your target machine. Boot your machine and tell the BIOS to boot off the stick. (usually something like F8, F11, or F12 will bring up the BIOS boot menu).
  4. Make sure you select the UEFI entry, it may look something like “UEFI: Patriot Memory PMAP”. If there is no UEFI entry, you may need to enable UEFI support in your BIOS setup.
  5. Selected “Automated install” from the menu.
  6. The rest of the installation is unattended and will repartition the drive and install SteamOS.
  7. After installation is complete, log onto the resulting system (using the Gnome session) with the predefined “steam” account. The password is “steam”. Run steam, accept the EULA, and let it bootstrap. Logoff the steam account.
  8. Log on with the “desktop” account. The password is “desktop”.
  9. From a terminal window, run ~/ This will prompt for a password – enter “desktop”. This script will perform the post-install customizations, delete itself, then reboot into the recovery partition capture utility.
  10. Confirm “y” to continue and the recovery partition will be created. When it is finished, reboot into your freshly installed SteamOS.

Build Your Own Steam Machine

Okay…I know, I know. AKA SteamBox as us elite gamers call it lovingly :-)

Here is the basic guide to developing your SteamOS machine:

SteamOS Beta is the first public wave of the operating system based on Linux. The core system composed from Debian 7, code named, aptly… Debian Wheezy. Valve’s work builds on top of the stable Debian coding and heightens it for a living room experience, or bathroom or mini-van…depending on where your television lives. Most of all, it is an open Linux platform that leaves you in complete control. You can take charge of your system and install new software or the content that you want or need, and yes you can view porn on the big screen. Those who are far sited will enjoy this set-up as now the PC comes to the big screen with Steam OS! Woot, woot!

And the reqirements are:

Processor: Intel or AMD 64-bit capable processor

Memory: 4GB or more RAM

Hard Drive: 500GB or larger disk

Video Card: NVIDIA graphics card

(AMD and Intel graphics support coming soon!)
