3.2. インストールソースとしての USB フラッシュドライブの準備

特異な USB メディア

異常にフォーマットされた、あるいはパーティション設定されたメディアの一部のケースでは イメージ書き込みが失敗する可能性があります。
You can install Fedora on 32-bit x86 systems and BIOS-based AMD64 and Intel 64 systems using a USB flash drive, provided that your hardware supports booting from this type of device. Note that you cannot install Fedora on UEFI-based AMD64 and Intel 64 systems from a USB flash drive, although you can use a USB flash drive to boot the Fedora installer on UEFI-based AMD64 and Intel 64 systems — refer to 「最低限ブートメディアの作成」.

3.2.1. Making Fedora USB Media on a Windows Operating System

Note — This Method Is Not Destructive

This method is not destructive, so existing data on the media is not harmed. Nevertheless, it is always a good idea to back up important data before performing sensitive disk operations.
The most straightforward way to place a Fedora image on USB media using a Windows operating system is to transfer the Fedora live image to the USB device with the LiveUSB Creator tool.
Note that the dd tool discussed in 「Making Fedora USB Media in UNIX, Linux, and Similar Operating Systems」 is also available for Windows. Follow the instructions in that section to use an implementation of dd for Windows operating systems. The instructions in this section assume that you will use LiveUSB Creator.
  1. Download the LiveUSB Creator program for Windows from
  2. LiveUSB Creator can create live USB media either from an image file that you downloaded previously, as described in 「Which Files Do I Download?」, or it can download an image file from the Internet. Either:
    • click the Browse button under the Use existing LiveCD label, browse to the location where you previously downloaded a Fedora Live ISO file, and select that file.
    • select a Fedora Live ISO file from the drop-down menu that LiveUSB Creator presents under the Download Fedora label. Note that image files are large and that it is probably impractical to use LiveUSB Creator to download an image file if you do not have a broadband connection to the Internet.
  3. Click Create Live USB.
