Currently, with a Fedora ISO, I have to download it, and subsequently burn the iso to a flash drive or a DVD blank. Then I have to boot that flashdrive or DVD in order to install Fedora. When the iso is booted, all disk partitions on the computer are unmounted.

Is it possible, as root, to run a program which will take that iso file as input, transfer to it's anaconda program, so as to allow me to install the Fedora version on an unmounted partition?

I see no other reason to have to go through the exercise of burning the iso to a flash drive and then running it to install Fedora to the same unmounted disk partition.

saving steps and time.
