Finish Installation and Run LiveUSB Creator


For Fedora LiveUSB Creator, I’ll use boot.iso file,
if you use Fedora 15, first download boot.iso file from this link:

x86 platform: http://mirror.optus.net/fedora/linux/releases/15/Fedora/i386/os/images/boot.iso
x86_64 platform: http://mirror.optus.net/fedora/linux/releases/15/Fedora/x86_64/os/images/boot.iso

Connect your USB Flash Disk, and run Fedora LiveUSB Creator.
Now click Browse and select your boot.iso (x86 or x86_64 platform)
Fedora LiveUSB Creator will automatically detect USB Flash Disk drive ID (if auto detect not correct click drop-box in Target Device and select drive ID/Name)
Last step click Create Live USB and wait until finish

Browse boot.iso

Browse boot.iso

Select Target Device

Select Target Device

After finish, close Fedora LiveUSB application and copy your Fedora ISO file (Fedora-15-i386-DVD.iso or Fedora-15-x86_64-DVD.iso), or you can use your harddisk to install Fedora 15 from ISO file without burn this ISO to DVD.
My Flash Disk will be like this:

Flash Disk File

Restart your computer and use USB for first boot option (usually press F12, in my Lenovo G450 laptop), choose to boot from USB Flash Disk,
when Fedora 15 grub screen appear, select the first line and press TAB, add “askmethod” at the end of this line and press ENTER to start Fedora 15 installation.

GRUB Boot Loader

“askmethod” parameter will ask you which method you will use for install Fedora 15. You can view all available options for Anaconda at http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Options.

Because we use ISO file in Flash Disk, when installation method appear, select Hard Drive and path for ISO file.
