To install one of the desktops using MinimalGUI iso image, run Sparky Advanced Installer from the Menu, or in a text console:
sudo sparky-installer gui
To install the system with on of the desktops using MinimalCLI iso image, run:
Make sure your internet connection is on to let the installer download some packages from online servers. Otherwise, it will install the live system as it is. Check HowTO Sparky CLI Edition as well.
