I turned on the system using a live version FEDORA 14 on USB pen drive 2 Gb. After I started the routine "Install to Hard Drive"

I'm trying to install Fedora 14 on a 4 giga SD flash drive. The installer shows that the capacity is 3839MB but when I try to install to it, it shows the error:

"The following errors occurred with your partitioning:

Your / partition is less than 2103 MB which is lower than recommended for a normal Generic install.

This can happen if there is not enough space on your hard drive(s) for the installation.

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

I would like to install Fedora 14 on sd card .

Fedora 14 is too old. If you partition does not have the required size anaconda (Fedora instaler) will not allow to install.

  1. Fedora 14 is an old version of Fedora (from 2010) and is no longer supported. Please use newest Fedora 24.

  2. Automatic partitioning automatically creates swap partition and separate boot partition. With this few space you need to use manual partitioning and create only one partition for root (/) filesystem.

  3. 4 GiB isn't a lot. It should be enough for installed system, but you are not going to have a lot of free space for new applications and data. For example my Fedora installation (just applications) currently takes about 9 GiB of space. You might want to consider using some lightweight spin like Xfce or LXDE or buying a bigger SD card.
