Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 213536
Installation without media
Last modified: 2013-03-13 01:42:41 EDT
Description of problem:
There is more advanced method to install Fedora without having to burn disks.
Perhaps this can be documented better in the installation guide.
mount -t iso9660 FC-6-i386-DVD.iso /mnt/fedora -o loop
cp -av /mnt/fedora/isolinux /boot/
Choose hard disk installation
Select path to ISO image. No slashes in front or end of the path.
Watch magic happen!
Agreed, I do this (or something akin) often on servers for testing where I don't
want to be bothered making media, or physically visiting them. I will see what
I can do.
Doesn't seem to have been done for Fedora 7 guide.
I've added this information for the F8 guide.
