Magpi help

Fri Oct 12, 2018 1:12 pm

Hi
I`m a 70 year old total newbie to pi and its projects, many of which I find fascinating.
I do have a question though...Taking Magpi issue 74 Raspberry pi on x86 laptops,
Under heading Burn and boot there is what looks like a link (magpi.cc/2joTqNm)
I have tried many times to access this link for further info and am unable to ???
Please tell an old duffer what he needs to do please. Thanks

Just tried clicking the link in my Magpi 74 and I end up here https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/r ... i-desktop/ which is probably what you want.

You will probably need to download the ISO and copy it to a CD/DVD to use it.

It is, of course, already late to be helpful but problem with the link you tried to type was in "o" instead of zero "0". So it should be magpi.cc/2j0TqNm
