biggest problem i see with it so far is the way it's actually installed, seems there is no manual install so it will use all of a hard drive.

makes dual booting it more of a problem unless you have a dedicated hard drive available for it.

 

so first thing they need to do in my opinion is make available a manual install option.

also seems it needs uefi bootloader, so either you'll need to update your bios or use a work around to boot it from a normal bios machine.

uefi can be worked around.

 

Dual booting would simply require two hard drives, remove the drive you want to preserve. Install on one, then put your other back in the machine and add steamos to the boot loader.
