Put our install of Fedora on another computer (Question/How to?) [closed]

Hi there !

After trying a lot of distros, I'm really happy with Fedora. I have finished installing the apps I need and setting all system settings and customization. I would like to clone this installation on another computer to avoid spending hours to redo all installations and settings.

So my questions are: how can a person with little technical knowledge like me perform this task? Is there an easy-to-use application for doing this?

Thank you in advance.

1) If the computers have similar hardware and the system hard disks are the same size or the target computer has a larger hard disk, then you could use FileZilla to create an image backup of your running system. Then use FileZilla to restore that image to the target system.

2) If you have many computers, then a network backup restore like Kickstart is a solution

3) If it is just one more computer which has a different hardware configuration than the running system, then a new install is the way to go. Presumably, you still have the Fedora image you used to install the running system.

Thank you very much for your answer. The other computer has a different hardware than this one. I thought I could clone my installation on another but I see it is more difficult than I imagined.
