View Full Version : Please help installing Fedora 12 Alpha
5th September 2009, 06:11 AM
I'm very frustrated right now because I can't figure out how to install the Fedora 12 Alpha? I downloaded it off Bit Torrent like it said to do and it finally gets done. Yes I have a high speed connection, DSL but it still took forever!
I looked in the various folders of the downloaded file but I can't find which one installs the blasted thing? There is Images, ISO Linux, Packages and so forth....
Can someone help me tonight if possible? Thanks in advance! :confused:

where did you download the iso image to?
i think bittorrent saves the iso image in the Download folder, for a newb i wouldnt recommend installing a Alpha
1) did you download it in windlows?
2) if answer to 1 is Yes, have a look in your Documents folder an there should be a Downloads folder there, the FC12 iso shoiuld be there
3) then just burn the ISO image with imgburn or nero image burn

Yes I downloaded it in Windows.
I saved it to my usual place for Downloads which is Documents in Windows Vista.
I couldn't find the ISO file at all.
I am now downloading the Fedora 11 version instead, its going much better as far as speed goes for the download.

always stick to a stable one if your a newb. Alpha's can have potential to screw your working Vista partition
