Question Unable to install Fedora 14 in English


I downloaded Fedora 14 in English, burned a bootable CD, when it boots up, its in German or other foreign language and no option to select english.

I have tried this at least 5 times with the same results. I am selecting english, but it does not seem to be the right version.

Whats the scoop, is there another location to download the english version?

Is there a trick or some unique step

Please let me know thanks a million Happy Holidays

Hi there, welcome to LQ!

At any given time, half the world is asleep, and half of the remaining half may be at work or otherwise predisposed. Therefore, it's a good idea to wait at least 24hours until re-considering whether or not to edit or add to your thread/question. After 24 hours, if nobody has replied, think about whether there's anything you can add to your question that might make it easier to answer.

In this case, you've given only an hour for someone to answer. Please, be patient!

I am not sure about the "live cd" but the full 3 gig dvd has a full range of languages and keyboards to select from and you do need to chose during install.

Seeing as it is using German i take it you are a Brit. or USA living in Germany .

your location s used to auto select the default language .

what is the default language and the default location set in the computer you are using

from your last post it shows you are using a windows computer (xp-sp3)to post here
if the ENGLISH link we posted is going to the German language page then it is because YOU set windows XP default location as Germany
your timezone would also be Germany's timezone
then the windows IE7,8, would use German as your default language

if that help page goes to the German language page it is because you have set the browsers default language as German

a direct link to the full install dvd( 32 bit)

the live (runs in the cd drive bay) 32 bit

The link sent doesnt send me to a german page; it is an english site, however the file I download seems to be german, because when I create an image and boot from the image its in German not English.

I get English when I get that cd. What do you mean by "create an image"? Are you burning the image to a cd/dvd and booting from that?
