How do I select which operating system to use on a CAEN computer?

All computers that run the CAEN Lab Software Environment (CLSE) are "dual-boot," meaning both Windows and Linux are available. To select a different operating system, reboot and select the desired OS:

  • To reboot from the Windows login screen, press Ctrl+Alt+Del and click OK to accept the CAEN Conditions of Use. Click the red arrow in the lower-right corner of the screen, then select Restart.
  • To reboot from the Linux login screen, select Restart from the list of options in the lower-left corner of the screen.

As the computer reboots, a black and white screen will be presented showing the operating system options available. Press the up/down arrow keys to highlight your choice, then press the Enter key.
