3.4. How Do I Make Fedora Media?

To make media, choose one of the following options:

  • Making CD and DVD Media. To learn how to turn ISO images into CD or DVD media, refer to

  • Making Minimal USB Boot Media. The minimal USB disk image, diskboot.img, requires a blank USB flash drive. Writing the minimal USB boot image to a USB flash drive will destroy all the data on the drive.

    On a Linux system, as root, use the following command to write the image to the drive:

    dd if=diskboot.img of=/dev/sd
    [Warning] Write to the Correct Device

    Make sure you are writing to the proper disk. Consult the /var/log/messages log or use the dmesg command. If your system supports dynamic device creation, run the command ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/ to locate the device.

    A comparable dd program for Windows systems is available at The website gives examples of how to use this Windows program to copy an image to a physical disk device.
