    Live USB Works Fine - Install on Hard Drive Not So Much

    I pulled down the live image and created a bootable USB drive to test on my HP Spectre 15" laptop. The live image running from the USB works fine. Picks up Wifi, graphics card, bluetooth, etc. As far as I could tell everything was working, even the touch screen. I decided to take the plunge and install to the hard drive. Sadly most of the devices wouldn't work with the hard drive install. No Wifi, Bluetooth or even the track pad. Any particular reason it would work fine from the USB but not the hard drive?

    Thanks, Jeff...

    While you may, I would never recommend an install from a "Live" version. If you like how the live version worked with your machine, download and install a full version with all the necessary drivers, support files, utilities, etc. - that you're going to wind up trying to install manually afterwards. A "live" install is so VERY minimal. It works, but ... ;-)
    Change - the only constant.

    Thank for the reply. It was actually from the Fedora installer. I downloaded the desktop version and used the Fedora writer to create the USB drive. It gives you the option to run/trial the OS or install it to the hard drive. Worked fine from the USB, not from the hard drive.
