I used to another linux distribution and I dont have experience with Fedora.

Im trying to create a live persistent usb based on Fedora 17 netinstall, but I dont manage to get it running.

I dont want to use the usb for later installations, I want to install Fedora netinstall on the usb itself.

I specifically need to run Fedora 17 because Im trying DevStack and I know it works fine on that version.

Could you please help me?

I already did that with F17 and it didnt work, apparently its a bug specific to that version. I still need to try that with F19, but Im looking (if possible) for a straight forward solution on F17 because of the DevStack requirements.

I was looking more of a dd kind of solution, since I already use linux as my host but not Fedora, and liveusb-creator works only on Fedora based systems (unfortunately).

Thanks anyway for your answer.

You can use liveusb-creator to install the iso image to the usb pendrive. You can also create a persistent memory with this program. See details here:
