I tried to install Fedora 23 from an USB stick, on my Hard Drive, but it always stopped after a few minutes, so I stayed on the screen, where I can create the User and set the ROOT Password. On the bottom only stood "Installing software xx%". The screen didn't freeze, but I let it make and after a few hours there was still the same with the same percentage. So I shot down the Computer and tried it another time. But finally it always stopped and didn't went on (first time at 17%, second time at 42%, third time at 15%, fourth time at 13%). Can anyone help me, or am I too impatient and I should wait a few hours more?

First, did you verify the issue you download and set on the USB, second did you run memory test?

First Things First; Properly delete your former partition and make space for the new boys in town(*Fedora 23) Second try maximising and minimising the windows using the windows icons, This is to reset the window cache and force a refetch of the windows content. This happens to me all the time since i am using an old machine. I almost forgot DO NOT RESIZE the window just use the windows icons for maximising and minimising.

But if the case still continue, install fedora and wait and hour, shutdown normally and bootup and you should see your grub menu.

Lastly use a lightweight DE like LXDE & XFCE, then when you have finished installing, you can now install gnome.

Installed it with LXDE, worked. It took only about 30 minutes :)
