Installing Ubuntu Or Fedora From A Windows Or Linux System With UNetbootin - Page 5

Now, from the Windows boot menu, select Windows:

When you boot Windows for the first time after the Windows partition was resized, it's possible that you get a screen like this (telling you that CHKDSK checks your Windows partition). That's nothing to worry about. After the check has finished, the system will reboot again. Please select to boot Windows again.

Now once you're back in your Windows system, the UNetbootin uninstaller starts automatically asking you if you'd like to uninstall UNetbootin (see the end of chapter two where I explain how to uninstall the UNetbootin package for Ubuntu). This refers to the Partition Manager which we don't need anymore, so you can select Yes.

Afterwards, please install the UNetbootin package for Fedora 7 (as shown at the beginning of chapter two for the Ubuntu UNetbootin package) and reboot afterwards.

When the system reboots, you will get to the Windows bootloader again, and again it says Ubuntu, but this time it refers to the Fedora 7 installer, so select Ubuntu:

The Fedora installer starts:

Select your language:

Choose your keyboard layout:

We want to install Fedora 7 over the internet, so we choose FTP or HTTP:

To install over the internet, we must enable the network connection. If you have a DHCP server (usually on your router), you can select DynamicIP configuration (DHCP). IPv6 is not necessary, so you can disable it if you like:

Next we must specify a Fedora mirror from which the installer can download the required Fedora packages. A list of Fedora mirrors is available here:

Here are two working examples:

Web site name:
Fedora directory: pub/fedora/linux/releases/7/Fedora/i386/os

Web site name:
Fedora directory: pub/linux/fedora/linux/releases/7/Fedora/i386/os

Please try to use a mirror that is close to you.

Now the necessary files to start the graphical Fedora installer are being downloaded:

The graphical installer starts. Hit Next:

On the next screen, select Use free space on selected drives and create default layout, then click on Next:

The default networking settings (DHCP) are ok, so click on Next:

Select your time zone:

Specify a root password:

Now we select the software that we want to install:

The installer checks and resolves all dependencies:

Click on Next to start the installation to your hard disk:
