Hello All,

  Has anyone attempted to install SteamOS on a computer yet?  I know it is still in Beta.  I had left my RS laptop at home yesterday and thought I would try it out.  I'll include links below.  I downloaded and followed directions to the letter and it appears to not write to the hard drive.  I put a 500 gig drive in the machine that had windows 7 installed.  After running through the SteamOS installed, Windows 7 still boots up.  I've used diskpart to clean the disk and then ran the install.  Then I still have an unpartitioned disk.  I seem to be missing something.  What have been your experiences with it?

I would assume that you can get better feedback in the Steam OS group:



Rocksmith 2014 doesn't even run on Linux / Steam OS, so since I don't have a second PC its not really an option for me.

I am really looking forward to the Steam Controller, though. :-)

Check out my easy tutorial on how to add a metronome to your CDLC: Mute the original music, play only with the metronome and find out how good you really sound! Also: Find CDLCs that have the metronome enabled!


Want a USB-Footswitch that you can use to control the tone selection and all the menus in Rocksmith? Check out Rodman's Tutorial and my additions to that!  Footswitch_Logo.png

My CDLCs: Devin Townsend - Life, Deep Peace, Ih-Ah!, Deadhead; Farin Urlaub - Ok

My ideas for new features in Ignition, e.g. filters for Multitrack CDLC and Metronome CDLC.

Thanks for the link.  It is disappointing that not all Steam games will run on a Steam PC.  I thought they would have some sort of WINE setup to allow for Windows only games.  I see that the now have released an ISO.  I'll go down that path and see what I get.
