Archivematica can be run as a Live USB.

  1. Shut down your PC or laptop and insert the Archivematica USB key.
  2. Make sure no other devices are plugged into your USB ports
  3. Turn on your PC and hold down the key which brings up your computer's boot menu (usually F12)
  4. Choose the boot from USB option
  5. Give the XUbuntu desktop a few minutes to load
  6. Look in the Docs directory on the desktop for the Archivematica workflow instructions document.

There are some known limitations with using a Live USB on Macs and older PCs.

You can download and create your own Archivematica Live USB.
