I have fedora on a parition. the root / folder, and a swap.
I wanna try other linux,
but i dont want to delete my Fedora.
So I want to back up my Fedora whole disk data,
can I create a disk image for Fedora so that later I can Restore it?
I seem to be having a similar problem to many in this forum where a Fedora 12 install fails to find any SATA hard disks (Asus motherboard with Via raid chipset) although Fedora 10 installs and runs great. I tried the DVD full install disk, the net install, and the upgrade from within Fedora 10 (where the installer can't detect the hard disk it just booted from).
I have Fedora 13 and although it doesn't update, it still works very good for almost everything, but some programmes have to update... I have looked a little at the Fedora web and it seems that I cannot download a normal set of DVDs with an image to install Fedora 18 in the deleted hard disk of the computer. What do I have to do exactly?
I am running Fedora 16 32+ bit distro on my pc. I just downloaded the package called liveusb-creator using yum command as root and was trying to see if I could use my 4 GB USB stick (pen drive) to install Fedora on other pcs of mine just as I normally do with DVD/CD. For this purpose I needed to download iso image of Fedora.
As I do my installations from a local iso image on my hard disk because that increase dramatically the speed (about 3mn for a minimal install, once done the parameters setups), I told me that for further installations of additionnal packages, it should be fine to use the same way.
So I created a /repo/dev directory
and I mount the image in it : mount Fedora-18-i386-DVD.iso
I just downloaded Fedora-18-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso, created a USB with liveusb-creator-3-11-8. The computer boots but it doesn´t show the option Install Fedora, the only options available are Start Fedora and Troubleshooting. If I start Fedora, it starts, asks me for a user, I login as root and can see the hard drive but can´t start installation procedure.
I'm trying to install Fedora 18 x86 64 bit with Xfce. My computer is a HP laptop with Windows 7 installed, and I'd like to keep the Windows and have a dual boot. I downloaded the ISO image and put it on a USB flash drive with the recommended LiveUSB creator. I was able to boot into this live version immediately with no difficulty. (The GNOME live USB I made never worked.
