    Try this site.

    That will give you a bootable usb drive. So you can get to work with.


    When you create a new partition on your harddrive first I think you can fool the installation by telling that the new partition is your USB drive.
    Have not done this myself, but it could work.
    After that you will probably need to install grub in order to boot from this new partition.

    Maybe that is to complicated for me.

    An other option is unetbootin

    Have a look at it.

    You can download the CD version. Or use Unetbootin as Charles4809 suggested.
    Note that the CD will contain only Gnome. If you prefer KDE, download it here.

    I don't think unetbootin will work if he's running it from windows....plus I've had a couple issues with it before.

    I'd suggest getting the cd like L4Linux suggested. Burn the iso onto a cd and you should be ready to go

    Actually, while I prefer the CD/DVD installation, I've used Unetbootin before for a Fedora install. No issues at all if you follow the documentation.
    Almost identical to a "cup-holder" style install, in fact!
    Unetbootin will guide you through an installation, ask about where to put the partition(s)... all that good stuff.
    I don't think unetbootin will work if he's running it from windows....
    Sorry to disagree, man... the only way I've ever ran it was from Windows. No sweat!

    hi guyz,
    I tried 2 times Live-usb-creator and unetbootin , acording to the process after that i rebooted the system when i press f8(on my system) it will shows 4 options
    1)usb drive
    2)hard disk
    3)cd drive
    4)network
    and i select 1 option then press the enter key my pc will not boot from the usb drive, so it will boot windows-XP from my HDD.
    so what is the problem can any one help me regarding this isssue ASAP.

    try sticking the USB drive in about 90% into the bios load. For me if I boot the computer with the USB in it never recognizes it but if I stick it in about 1-2 seconds before the end of the bios screen it works no problem

    In the fedora 10 iso there is a file called boot.iso in the images directory.

    1. Burn that on to a CD.
    2. move the fedora 10 dvd iso on to a vfat/fat32 drive/partition.
    3. Boot using cd created in (1)
    4. When asked from source pick local disk and give the path that the fedora 10 dvd is now located.
