Installing Fedora23 from One PC to Another

I have been using Fedora quite comfortably for past few months now. I have Fedora23 KDE (64bit) running on my laptop. Having seen Fedora23 on my computer, my friend is desperate to install it on his PC as well. But, I have the ISO file of Fedora22 (64bit) which is not the latest version (we both have 64bit, Dell Inspiron Laptop).

Now, I just want to know "if there is a way to install Fedora23 directly from my computer to his without having to download Fedora23 explicitly". Because place where I live, downloading 1GB would take more than a day and I don't want my friend to struggle like me to download or update (which also downloads some files) Fedora23.

Inputs regrading ways (if any) to install Fedora23 from one computer to another is sought here.

Sorry, I don't have enough insight into this, so, no idea as to which tags to choose. I am just guessing here on the tags part.

As far as I know, there is no way to do what you want to do. I was thinking of a disk image (using dd or Gnome Disk) but then you friend had also all data and settings. ...You guys need a F23 iso, or install F22 and upgrade, or ... in any case you will have "a lot of" network traffic...

You could try kickstarting a Live CD. This would allow you to build an iso for installing Fedora locally (possibly with added content).

The Live images don't do kickstart; kickstart requires boot arguments that are passed in very early and parsed by the installer, and on a live image, the system does not boot into an installer.
