You can reinstall the operating system for your Kingsoft Cloud GPU Elastic Compute (GEC) instances when a system fault occurs or you want to change the operating system type or version. Note: You can reinstall the operating system only for GEC instances in the Stopped state.
In the console, you can change the operating system of your GEC instances in all regions and all availability zones to any version of Windows or Linux operating systems.
