I wanted a way of carrying around a copy of Fedora, if necassary I could use it to boot friends pc’s who have got viruses, or any other problems that mean they don’t have access to their data, perhaps I could so some thing about it.
I’ve done this before but couldn’t remember how do do it. Can’t believe I forgot this, it’s so easy.
Go here – https://fedorahosted.org/liveusb-creator/ and
1, If you’re running windows, download the USB Creator.
If you’re already running Fedora
2, Go to a command prompt and type
yum install liveusb-creator
Give it a few seconds to install, run it and you’ll be presented with this.
If you’ve already downloaded a Fedora Live CD then you can use the browse button to look for it. If you don’t have a previously downloaded ISO then you can use the other option to download. The version of the usb creator that’s installed only has up to Fedora 18, doesn’t seem to have anything later than that. I downloaded the Fedora 20 live media manually.
Select your target drive and pick, in my case, the usb drive. For persistant media I chose a gig, this is space on the stick which you can use for files etc.
Click the big button at the bottom. Give it about 5 mins and you’ll have your Fedora Bootable USB stick.
Quite handy to have as part of your tech toolkit 🙂
