Hi! Is it possible to write fedora image to an USB stick and boot it up on a computer? And how, step by step do you do this, and how much space is required. I am working at home on a laptop cause i left my work place where i have the fedora machine running and moved.

You can also install Fedora to a USB stick as if it was a hard drive. You need an empty USB drive that cannot be your Live media that you use to install the new system. (make sure you install the bootloader correctly).

That way you have a customizable OS, not only with permanent storage for your data, you can also persistently install programs and edit configs.

I recommend a usb pen drive of at least 16G capacity, better 32 (but that all depends on your needs)
