Download and prepare ration of Installation medium
The first thing we have to do is download the system image, which we can record on a DVD or a USB drive, we will download it from its official website. the link here.
Once this is done we proceed with the creation of the installation medium.
CD / DVD installation media
- Windows: We can record the iso with Imgburn, UltraISO, Nero or any other program even without them in Windows 7 and later it gives us the option to right click on the ISO.
- Linux: You can use especially the one that comes with the graphical environments, among them are, Brasero, k3b, and Xfburn.
USB installation medium
- Windows: You can use Universal USB Installer or LinuxLive USB Creator, both are easy to use.
- Although there is also a tool that the Fedora team provides us directly, it is called Fedora Media Writer from the Red Hat page where it explains how it works.
- Linux: The recommended option is to use the dd command, with which we define in which path we have the Fedora image and also in which mount point we have our usb.
Generally the path to your pendrive is usually / dev / sdb this you can check with the command:
sudo fdisk -l
Already identified you just have to execute the following command
dd bs=4M if=/ruta/a/Fedora28.iso of=/ruta/a/tu/pendrive && sync
