Any hard-core PC gamer would easily recognize Valve and its SteamOS for their efforts in bringing PC games in a console environment. However, ever since its release last December, SteamOS has been relatively beyond the reach of most people due to the requirements need to run the operating system.

Fortunately, Valve today announced that SteamOS will now be compatible with computers with older BIOS systems. Moreover, the updated version of the OS should now allow users to use SteamOS in a dual-boot configuration as well as support for partitioning, recovery and DVD install.

The ISO file for the installer is now available at steamcommunity.com for testers to install on their machines. But it should also be noted that this new version of SteamOS hasn’t undergone much testing yet, so Valve is giving a word of caution to anyone who wants to try this version of the SteamOS saying not to install the OS in a device they are not prepared to lose.
