+To start the installer from Windows, you must first obtain CD-ROM/DVD-ROM or USB
+Memory Stick installation media as described in <xref linkend="official-cdrom"/>
+and <xref linkend="boot-usb-files"/>.
+If the medium is a CD-ROM or DVD-ROM, when you insert it a pre-installation program
+should be launched automatically.  In case Windows doesn't start it, or you are using
+a USB Memory Stick medium, you can run it manually by accessing the device and
+executing <command>setup.exe</command>.
+When the program is started, it will ask a few preliminar questions and prepare the
+system to start the installer.
