Yes you can, there is a set of applications included, recent kernel for having most new drivers. Do you have special needs? Can you elaborate on what hardware and what usage?

I believe this from OMLx 4.0 Beta Release Notes is accurate:

Internet Connection

Calamares Installer checks if an Internet connection is available, but OpenMandriva Lx 4 will install just fine even without . It is perfectly OK to simply install as you normally would and proceed to use your new system as normal.

Updating such a system would require being temporarily connected to the internet or downloading the packages elsewhere and transferring them to the installed system and installing the updated packages. But as you are not connected to the internet you could simply use the system and not update for how ever long you see fit.

It seems to me an average usage, what could be difficult is when you need to add another software or update existing without Internet connection… Not sure if there is an easy way for this.
