  1. PC with Windows installed in it.
  2. ISO image for Kiwi, it can be downloaded from Kiwi Linux website.
  3. A utility like Universal USB Installer, which is essentially a tool that allows choosing from a set of Linux distributions to be put on a pen drive.
  4. A FAT32 formatted USB pen drive (Universal USB Installer can format the USB) with at least 2 GB of free space.
