Anundoram Borooah Award Scheme is a programme of Government of Assam that awards meritorious students with a laptop computer. The laptop shipped in 2018 comes pre-installed with SuperX 5.0, however it has many customisation and applications pre-installed unlike generic SuperX and hence to update the system for the first time the following method is recommended.
