Okay so if I understand correctly you're trying to create a Live CD or USB. Well if you want to make a live CD then all you have to do is download the ISO file off the web and then burn it to a CD. Burning it to a CD should be easy, however, if you don't know how to do that then I'd be glad to show you how. Now if you want to get a live USB then it's slightly different. But the first step is still the same so just get the ISO file of the desired GNU/Linux operating system. Then the different part is that you'll have to use something like Unetbootin (which is what I use) to put the ISO file on the USB (you can't just copy and paste the ISO file on the USB). Again if you have trouble trying to figure that out then I'd be glad to help.

https://getfedora.org/en/workstation/download/
That is where you can get the Fedora 22 ISO file^

http://unetbootin.github.io/
That is where you can download Unetbootin^

I hope this answers your question.

For Fedora 22 you don't want to use unetbootin. https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US...oot-media.html

When I made bootable usb for fedora, it was simply a matter of downloading the iso and using dd to burn the image to a usb stick (as described in the link above). The resulting usb booted on both a uefi/secure boot laptop and a non-uefi bios laptop without any problems.

Oh sorry I didn't know about that with Fedora 22. I don't usually use Unetbootin (or USBs in general) but I have used it with Ubuntu 14.04 and Arch Linux. All my other distros are on CDs. But thanks for that heads up.

how did you install fedora without installing from a live cd/usb ?
Code:
sudo yum install livecd-tools

If you are asking me, I followed the dd procedure describe here (https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US...NIX_Linux.html) using a downloaded xfce spin image.

Unlike earlier versions, the fedora 22 xfce spin iso is a live image. Creating it this "easy way" doesn't get you any persistent storage, for that you need a system with liveusb-creator, but the dd-created usb will boot and run Fedora 22 just fine, even on my nice new uefi/secure boot laptop.

If you are not looking for a way to simply put the Fedora iso on a DVD or flash drive but want to create your own modified live image, the link below at the Fedora Project might help.

Again, the Fedora 22 xfce spin IS a live image. To be sure I remembered correctly, I just made a new Fedora 22 XFCE live usb, and I'm posting this from the result.

* Found a loose 4gb usb
* downloaded the 64bit Fedora 22 XFCE iso from the fedora spins page
* from a running f22 computer, did dd if=Fedora..whatever.iso of=/dev/sdc (/dev/sdc was my usb device, make sure you check the target device id)
* when dd completed, took the flash drive to an older laptop with traditional bios, booted, connected to my wifi network, and opened Midori to visit linuxquestions.org and make this post.

If you need to customize the live os, use other tools. With this default configuration you have an xfce desktop with some commonly used apps, and you can use dnf to install some additional apps. Like a CD media live os, anything you customize/insstall during your session goes away when you reboot. I just installed mc.

This also boots on my nice new i7 touch laptop, but os itself doesn't run properly, fedora doesn't seem understand the Geoforce 4gb switchable graphics in the new laptop

Update: The f22 live usb worked fine on the I7 touch laptop, booted with secure boot enabled and apparently whatever issue I saw with the graphics driver a couple months ago was either my fault, or has been cured. Everything worked very well booted from the usb, including touch.
