Fedora 12 Installation

This post will show you the installation of Fedora along with Windows 7.

This Post is mainly for

  • Beginners of Linux
  • those who entered the college just now
  • who don’t have prior working knowledge on Linux

Here we go….

I have taken DVD Version of Fedora 12 (32 Bit OS)

Step 1: Create a Partition on windows to give space for Fedora, Just 20GB space is enough.. You can store all your files under windows and use it in linux whenever you need. So no extra space needed for Linux. (see the image below)

Step 2:  Insert the DVD and boot from the DVD and select the first option (as shown below) “Install or Upgrade an existing System”

Step 10: Since it is dual OS, then select which OS you like to be the default boot, I made windows 7 as Default OS.

Step 11: Now click “Customize Now” which shows the screen for additional softwares to be installed along with the OS, If you don’t select “customize now”, then only default set of packages will be installed, Later you can install the other package. If you are a developer, then select “Customise Now” and install all the packages that you need. (Please the next couple of images)

Put a “Tick” wherever possible (if you have doubt, select all the software and install the OS).  Once the Components in the left side is selected, in the right hand side a set of softwares will be listed and put a tick to install that software.

Step 12: Depending on the size of RAM and other parameters, the installation will vary from 15 minutes to 45 minutes.
