    Can I do a full install from a live USB?


    Hi I just made a live F16 USB and it works GREAT! on my desktop.
    My question is: can I take this USB and do a full install on my laptop?

    I used the LiveUsbCreator and chose the desktop(first)option.

    Should I choose the KDE option instead and make another USB?

    I'd appreciate ANY suggestions.

    Thanks.

    I don't know specifically about Fedora, but I have used unetbootin to create many live USB keys that I have installed distros from. If it is possible, there is usually an "Install DistroName" option either on the desktop or buried somewhere in a system menu.
    What do we want?
    Time machines!

    When do we want 'em?
    Doesn't really matter does it!?

    i just launch unetbootin then point it at the iso image of the OS i want to install from USB , from there it formats my usb stick and puts the correct OS on it.
    Then just boot your machine off usb and follow the steps.
