    sir I did it using liliusb maker...
  3. fedora recommends this application instead:
    http://fedorahosted.org/liveusb-creator

    Did you read the article in my other post? It has detailed instructions.

    May I ask what your main use of linux will be? I ask because the only reason you'd want Fedora is for a server type application. I'd highly suggest going to a Debian flavor of linux.


    huh? Just because it uses a slightly different package management system does not mean its for server only. Please go away and keep that opinion to your self.

    cmon people. please don't fight :non: .. I think i might have got the real reason.. please correct me if I'm wrong... I am using a 3.73 gb usb stick to install the fedora dvd version.. I thin kit doesn't have the required free space to function. So that could be the reason..

  7. Can the DVD version of FEDORA only be made bootable from a system where FEDORA has been installed?
  8. It sounds like it can be done from any Windows install or Linux install with the software noted previously (liveusb-creator), and it does kinda sound like the LinuxLive USB Creator you used should work for creating bootable media. Ultimately, you're not really giving us enough information, for example

    Is it the case that it never boots, or that, for some reason, it does boot but the installation options are limited/missing?

    Have you checked if your BIOS supports booting off a pendrive?
    If it does, go into bios (usually f12, f1, f2, DEL or shift at startup) and change the ordor so tat external usb drive or usb drive or somthing like that is top priority. save changes and reboot. Some computers may require you to press a key to boot off the pendrive.

    Hope this helps.
