Installing Instant-on for Android
Important! To enjoy all the benefits of the Instant-on system, you
will need to enter your Gmail account information. If you do not
have a Gmail account, you may set one up during the setup
process.
The first time you turn on your computer, it will complete the
Windows XP or Windows 7 setup. Once Windows is set up, you will be
asked if you wish to setup the Instant-on system. You will then be led
through setting up the system.

You can also check for updates to your installation at any time or
according to a schedule by selecting the Live Update tab.
In the event that your Instant-on system should not work correctly, you
can select the Recovery tab to recover the original installation.

Instant-on system. Please back up any data you need to keep
before starting the Recovery process.
