Trying to install Fedora 25 on my laptop. I was still running an old Fedora 20.

However, I can't burn a DVD and I don't have access to a USB media either.

So, I tried with this method . It works perfectly until I have to properly install Fedora. The installation tool requires me to umount /dev/sda2 which is my /home partition. If I umount the partition I don't see how to system is going to be able to read from the ISO file.

Do you have any ideas? Any trick I could use? I really don't want to burn a CD.

    Create a new partition e,g sda5 size= 5G , move your iso to it then modify the line on 40_custom to loopback loop (hd0,5)$isofile – GAD3R Dec 4 '16 at 18:19
  • Not an answer, but you may also be able to simply upgrade without media. Use dnf to update to Fedora 21 (instructions here and then use dnf system upgrade to go to F25. However, is not being able to get to media a temporary condition or a permanent one? I'd be concerned about taking such a long jump without some fallback boot method. – mattdm Dec 11 '16 at 18:49
