Fedora 26

Clearly Fedora is one of the most interesting Linux distributions you can find, in addition to counting with a wide range of software within its repositories and also without neglecting the great support that the large community of users that supports it already has.

This time the system It is in its Fedora 26 version whereby I will show you, how to install Fedora 26, for those who still do not know how to install it or are just curious to try the system and its benefits.

Fedora has the Gnome desktop environment by default, with which it has the large number of tools that the Gnome team offers within the system.

To install Fedora 26 on our computer first we will have to download the ISO of the system, for this we will have to go to its official page and proceed with the download here.

Now if you don't want Gnome as your desktop environment, you can choose one of the other its flavors here.

Already having the image of the system we proceed to record it in some medium either on DVD or on some usb.

Prepare Installation Media

  • Windows: We can burn it ISO with Imgburn, UltraISO, Nero or any other program even without them in Windows 7 and later gives us the option to right click on the ISO.
    • Linux: You can use any CD image management tool, especially the one that comes with graphical environments, among them are, Brasero, k3b, and Xfburn.

Fedora 26 USB Installation Media

    • Windows: They can use Universal USB Installer or LinuxLive USB Creator, both are easy to use. Although there is also a tool that the Fedora team provides us directly, it is called Fedora Media Writer from the Red Hat page where explains how it deals.
    • Linux: The recommended option is use the dd command.
dd bs=4M if=/ruta/a/fedora.iso of=/dev/sdx sync

To install Fedora 26 we must have at least the following requirements:

  • 1 GHz processor or higher.
  • 1 GB of RAM.
  • VGA compatible graphics card.
  • 10 Gb of hard disk.
  • Internet connection.

Step-by-step installation of Fedora 26

Done the installation media procedure, we proceed to perform the installation by inserting the DVD or USB to our computer, if you have no idea what I'm talking about, I recommend you watch some videos on how to configure the BIOS and how to boot a system from DVD or USB.

Fedora 26

At the beginning We will choose the first option that will be to start the system. Once this is done, the first screen that will appear will be the system desktop, now we will only have to click on the only icon that is there.

Installation and system language.

Doing this will open the Anaconda installer that will be our assistant during the installation of Fedora 26 on our computer.

The first screen of the Anaconda installer will ask us to choose the language with which our system will be installed, in our case it will be Spanish, and we will only have to choose which country they are from.

Fedora 26

Select system location.

The next step will be to choose the location of the system installation, if you are using another system and have no notion at this point of what to do, I recommend that you better do this in a virtual machine and thus avoid losing important data.

Now if you are aware of this, it is necessary that here you have the notion of what to do since each case is different.

1.- Choose a hard drive and you choose the automatic option this allows Fedora to take care of partition management and automatically do all the hard drive partitioning work.

This entails losing all the existing data on the disk of your choice as it will be formatted.

2.- Choose the hard drive and in customHere you are the one who takes control of how Fedora 26 will be installed on your computer, for this you have to know about disk partitioning and types of partitions and tables.

Once you have made your decision and chosen the place where the system will be installed, we only have to give where it says "Begin Installation".

Creation of root user and password 

Now I knowWe will only have to configure the root password and a user account, the only recommendation that I will give you is that the user and root password that you choose are different and that you can remember.
