Introduction Edit

Welcome to Fedora! This is a guide to getting an installation up and running on your PC.

Installation Edit

  1. Choose your edition. Editions available are Workstation, Server, Atomic, Spins, Labs, Silverblue, and more. This guide will cover Workstation, but the process is similar.

Using the live image Edit

  1. Write the image to a DVD or USB using tools. For USB I recommend Etcher, and for DVD I recommend imgburn. It's out of date, but still works.
  2. Boot into the image. You'll notice two options available on startup, Try Fedora, and Install to Hard Drive. You want to select Install to Hard Drive.
  3. Choose your language and keyboard layout.
  4. Configure your timezone and hard drive configuration.
  5. Click Install.
  6. When it says finished, reboot, removing the live DVD/USB.
  7. Configure your account in GNOME's initial setup.
  8. Finished!

Using the net-installer Edit

  1. This image is small enough to fit on a CD, so I recommend you use a CD. You can still use a USB or DVD, however. Use imgburn or Etcher.
  2. Boot into the image, Unlike the live image, you will boot straight into the installer.
  3. Choose your language and keyboard layout.
  4. Configure time zone, hard drive.
  5. (OPTIONAL) You can also configure your hostname and software selection. I reccomend not tinkering with these.
  6. Click Install.
  7. Reboot when it's done, taking out the CD/USB.
  8. Configure your account in GNOME's initial setup.
  9. Finished!
