Running Redox on real hardware
==============================
Currently, Redox only natively supports booting from a hard disk with no partition table. Therefore, the current ISO image uses a bootloader to loads the filesystem into memory and emulates one. This is inefficent and requires a somewhat large amount of memory, which will be fixed once proper support for various things (such as a USB mass storage driver) are implemented.

Despite the awkward way it works, the ISO image is the recomended way to try out Redox on real hardware (in an emulator, a virtual hard drive is better). You can obtain an ISO image either by downloading the [latest release](https://github.com/redox-os/redox/releases), or by building one with `make iso` from the [Redox source tree](https://github.com/redox-os/redox).
