I have downloaded the fedora 19 DVD iso and want to use it to install through USB.

I have used the Linux live creator & other tools to make it bootable. The installer runs correctly but it fails to get the source for installation and says:

Error setting up source for installation.

There are instructions here for installing to a USB stick - but try refering to the ones relating to the use on dd here.

Note: Fedora 20 has been released TODAY (17/12/2013)- http://fedoraproject.org/en_GB/get-fedora - so you might want to use that instead.
