9.6.2. Verifying boot media

You can test the integrity of an ISO-based installation source before using it to install Fedora. These sources include CD, DVD, and ISO images stored on a local hard drive or on an NFS server. Verifying that the ISO images are instace before you attempt an installation helps to avoid problems that are often encountered during installation.
Fedora offers you three ways to test installation ISOs:
  • select the Verify and Boot option on the Fedora Live CD. To access the Live CD boot menu, press any key within ten seconds of the splash screen appearing.
  • select OK at the prompt to test the media before installation when booting from the Fedora distribution CD set or DVD
  • boot Fedora with the option mediacheck option.
