I think she meant could you try, say, Ubuntu just to see what language that comes up in. There should be no issue with the images you are getting from Fedora. It would be interesting to see.

The suggestion is to try a different distro www.distrowatch.com to eliminate a potential issue at the Fedora end.
Please refrain from the F-word; thank you.

ok so you do NOT have a operating system installed on the computer you want to put fedora on -- right?
and a second computer running the very old ( 5 years out of date) xp- sp2
is what you are using to download the live iso

WHAT software on xp are you to burn that iso image to cd - nero ? or what
as far as i remember xp ,on it's own, can not burn a iso image .You must have a third party software installed to do that .Like the not free nero

also keep in mind that fedora is a "Research and Development"/ testing operation system and if the computer you are putting it on is more than 6 years old it might not run on the old hardware

my linux,

In any future posts you make, please leave out the profanity.

We understand that this is frustrating for you, but yelling and cursing are not helping.

Thank you!
