Tinfoil Linux Installation


Hi, I am having problems with Tinfoil Hat Linux installation. I burned a copy of the IMG file on one disk that won't boot, so then I tried another disk where I converted the IMG file to ISO and burned it to a disk. That didn't work either. It says on the website to burn it to a floppy disk, does that have something to do with it not booting? It has the modern x86 architecture, so I don't know what is happening. Thanks for your help, if you haven't seen Tinfoil it looks awesome, I can't wait to try it out.

Tinfoil Hat Linux is abandoned for years. You will never boot that on modern hardware (and by the way, the x86 architecture is anything but modern).
If you want a Linux distribution that is aimed at security try it with Tails or Lightweight Portable Security.
