If your system came with the Sound Blaster Audigy instead of the onboard audio, make sure you are plugging the speakers to the correct sound card!

Steps to install the drivers:

1) Plug in the wired network connection before turning on the device (as of the 2017.04.07.0 version, this is a requirement for wired networking)

2a) Unless the computer is already set to boot to optical media first, turn on the computer and enter the BIOS by pressing the F1 (or F11) key multiple times
2b) Go to the "Boot" option using the left or right arrow keys and then adjust which device is booted first, second, third, etc

3) Insert the 32bit version of the XiniX boot media into the optical drive

4) Select "Low Resolution" from the 'XiniX Boot Options" menu

5) In the "Welcome" wizard run through the setup to create a DATA partition and optionally install and desired software

6) When you reach the desktop, a balloon should appear referencing the installation of the more powerful graphical system - click the "Install" button

NOTE: if you miss this step, go into "Access > Local > Software > System" and after it has populated (it will take a minute or two), click the toggle icon and select the "Install" option for the "xorg" entry

7) Go into "Access > Device > Drivers" (using 'now has zen' as password), again waiting a minute or two for population, then the click the toggle icon and select the "Install" option for the "HP_Pavilion_743" entry

8) Now you can optionally perform step 7 again with the "xf86_video_nv" entry or simply reboot the device twice to have the proper video driver installed

NOTE: the first reboot should boot back into the "Low Resolution" mode, then the "Start XiniX" option for the second time
