I have searched Google for how to download Fedora, and all I find is how to create bootable USB.

Once I load Fedora from bootable USB how do I permanently install Fedora from USB onto my laptop?

  • Does the installation guide help? Why not? – ckujau Apr 21 '15 at 2:08
  • @ckujau Thank you for posting the link. When I searched Google, I didn't find, otherwise I wouldn't have posted here. Have a nice day. – Glowie Apr 21 '15 at 15:42

Maybe this is not obvious enough from the documentation, but: once you have that bootable USB media and boot it to the live environment, there is a window with two big choices: Try Fedora or Install to Hard Drive:

enter image description here

Hopefully, everything should be clear from there. (And if you choose to "try" initially and close that window, there is an installer icon on the dash.)

  • ahhh, but I didn't see the option to "Install to Hard Drive" when I booted to Fedora. When I created bootable USB for Ubuntu, that option to install to hard drive was right on the desktop. I shall check again ...... So far I get option "start fedora live" – Glowie Apr 21 '15 at 17:45
  • You'll see this from the live environment. – mattdm Apr 21 '15 at 17:50
