Installing Fedora 22

Updated on August 19, 2015

Step 1

The first thing you would need to do is download Fedora. Once you have downloaded an image you can create a DVD or bootable USB. As mentioned above I will be using a virtual environment which means I can use the image itself without any processing.

Step 2

Insert the DVD, bootable USB or mount the image onto workstation. Although it’s obvious, you now need to turn your system on. Once your computer is loaded you will see a screen similar to Fig. 1 below, if you are not sure whether or not you would like to use Fedora you can try it by Clicking Try Fedora this does not install Fedora but allows you to use the OS (Operating System) and the application which come preinstalled. If you are satisfied you can click Install to Hard Drive.

NOTE: This will install a new OS if your computer has Windows installed you may not be able to revert back. This is the reason why I am using a virtual environment.

Step 3

Once you click Install to Hard Drive you will be taken to a screen shown in Fig.2. You can select the language and click Continue.

Step 4

This step is very important, if you have created a partition for Fedora this is where you would select it. You can do this by clicking Installation Destination as shown in Fig. 3. I do not recommend a dual boot system for Fedora as the slightest mistake can cause you to lose data. Pay very careful attention for this step.

Once you click Installation Destination you will be able to create new partitions and/or encrypt you data. The data encryption should be done if you are dealing with sensitive information and require high level security; however, if this is not the case I do not recommend using encryption as you could lose your data if you forget your passphrase. Once you are happy to continue with the installation click Begin Installation.

Step 5

Once installation has started you can set your root password. This is just like the administrator password for Linux, although some flavors or Unix does not require this. You can also create a user by clicking User Creation (as seen in Fig. 4). After this you can let the installation complete. Once the installation is complete click Finish Configuration.

Step 6

This is the final step. All you need to do now is dismount the ISO image and restart the computer.
