This post will provide a quick tutorial about Fedora Media Writer, and its usage in both Fedora and Windows. Fedora Media Writer is a very small, lightweight, comprehensive tool that simplifies the linux getting started experience – it downloads and writes your favorite Fedora flavor onto a USB drive, which can be later used to boot up any system.
Editor’s note: This also means you can now create Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) LiveCDs in just a few minutes. Since RHEL was recently made freely available to all developers, you can download the ISO to use with the Fedora Media Writer.
How do you get it ?
sudo dnf install liveusb-creator
(Requires Fedora 24)
You can download it here and execute liveusb-creator.exe with admin privileges
How does it work ?
For both Windows and Linux, it works in exactly the same way. When you run Fedora Media Writer, you should see a dialog like this:
1. Run Fedora Media Writer
2. Choose your favorite Fedora flavor (or other operating system)
3. Hit “Create Live USB” and wait for it to download and write
Editor’s note: The Fedora Project also provides multi-platform command line instructions for creating live-USB media.Last updated: August 23, 2023
