4.2. Installing from a Different Source

All boot media except the distribution DVD present a menu that allows you to choose the installation source, such as the network or a hard disk. If you are booting the distribution DVD and do not want to install from the DVD, hit Tab at the boot menu. Add a space and the option askmethod to the end of the line that appears below the menu.

You can install Fedora from the ISO images stored on hard disk, or from a network using NFS, FTP, or HTTP methods. Experienced users frequently use one of these methods because it is often faster to read data from a hard disk or network server than from a CD or DVD.

The following table summarizes the different boot methods and recommended installation methods to use with each:

Boot Method Installation Method
DVD DVD, network, or hard disk
Minimal boot CD or USB, rescue CD Network or hard disk
Live CD or USB Install to Hard Disk application

Chapter 6, Installation Methods contains detailed information about installing from alternate locations.
