Installing Fedora Core


Hey guys, I am a complete newbie to Linux, but am getting ready to try it out using Fedora Core.

I downloaded the image from the website and burnt using Nero.

I have created the new partition using Partition Magic. All that works fine and I was able to boot into the installation screen perfectly.

After selecting my keyboard type and language, it then asks me for the media type which I am installing from, so I selected Local Disk Drive, and clicked on OK, but a message is returned that Fedora Installation Disk is not present.

Can someone please assist me in installing.

BTW - I am installing on a notebook

Hello seanbee,

I think you need to select CD/DVD or similar instead of Local Disk Drive.

Thanks,
Kirtmaan.

Sorry the option is actually Local CD-ROM and when I select it the message is The Fedora Core CD was not found in any of your CD-Rom drives.


The available options are:

Local CDROM
Hard Drive
NFS image
FTP
HTTP

Hello seanbee,

I think that your CD is not properly readable. Can you try with a Freshly burnt CD of FEDORA ISO ?

Thanks.
Kirtimaan.
