Installing Fedora in a totally new hard disk

asked 2018-05-02 22:26:00 -0500

As a windows user, I'm switching to Fedora this week and trying to understand the procedures... I know that everything is clear and lots of YouTubers are helping in setting up and installing Fedora but, I have bought a new SSD drive that haven't been used before so I'm not sure how can I install Fedora as a first OS with it! can you please help me?

Are you keeping the Windows hard drive in there as well? If so, you may want to write a note to yourself before starting to make sure you don't format that drive by accident. Perhaps one is a different size? The Fedora installer is smart enough to warn you; though, and will try to use unformatted disk space first.

Once you have the downloaded .iso file written to a USB pen drive (or DVD) the graphical installation process is straightforward. The Fedora Documentation team is providing an excellent guide on how to install Fedora:

Just read or skim to through it

(FYI: when you read Anaconda somewhere, that's the name of Fedora's installer).

You should have no problems. Most complications happens when someone tries to install Fedora on a disk and want to keep a pre-installed other OS. The install procedure will take care of setting up the disk partitions and creating the required file systems.
