This is nothing to do with Fedora.

My old windows laptop internal drive was crashed. I took that hard drive outside and connected that to IDE/SATA Adaptor cable. In device manager it shows as 2TB hard drive, even though its actual size is 320GB. This must be due to logical error . Am unable to access any files in that.

I tried many softwares found over net to fix bad sector, nothing worked and also took started running for days so I had canceled the operation.

Any suggestion , if I can fix bad sectors using Linux.

@bodhi.zazen Thanks , I didnt know abt dnf ..

If I create Fedora OS image using clonezilla which is running in an external hard disk, can reuse same image run in another external hard drive ? . Also extracting that image file in another hard drive which might create actual partition as in the first hard disk ?

I am looking for some utilities to backup to Fedora with restore point(just like in windows). I like to backup every week and restore it to earlier version if some upgrade/installation goes wrong.

I had insalled from RPM having a tool with GUI- CloneZilla , BackInTime,LuckyBackup . All these tools were able to backup only USER data , not the OS. If I select the root directory to backup, it was failing with error as permission denied. I have given full access to Backup destination folder, still didnot work. I guess, I need give Unlimited access to those tools and dont know how. Please suggest the way

Also, am running Fedora from external hard drive in some partition. Trying to export it to another partition in the same Hard drive.

Hi, I had faced similar issue. It seems like Fedora doesn't set default values for wifi antenna if there is drivers compatible issue (just my assumption). You can try few simple commands mentioned the link. link text

Finally I had fixed it..

This link was very useful. Before running these commands, wifi signal was very weak and was not stable connection. After running the below command, I hav started seeing actual signal strength as in my mobile wifi scan.

 1. modinfo -p rtl8723be
 2. sudo modprobe -r rtl8723be
 3. sudo modprobe rtl8723be ant_sel=1
 4. iwlist scan | egrep -i 'ssid|level'

Note: rtl8723be --> this is my wifi card of laptop. Search in google to find actual driver name as

yourdrivername linux

[Solved] - I just deleted all partition of external hard drive and cleaned it using windows disk partition from command prompt . Then initialized that disk. After that I was able to install Fedora :)

I am using an HP Laptop AY0083TU with windows.I am trying to install Fedora 25 into external Hard drive which has free 100GB of unallocated space. When I choose manual partition option for installation, I get an following error even though defined all the partitions like Root,HOME,SWAP and BOOT.

error: you have not defined a root partition which is required for installation of fedora to continue

Even if I choose automatic partition, still I get the above error.
