Join Scott Simpson for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a USB installer, part of Learning Fedora Linux.
- In order to install Fedora from a USB stick,…I'll need to get the image I downloaded…onto a USB stick somehow.…Here on Windows I'll visit a website…called unetbootin.sourceforge.net…and click on Download (for Windows).…Just wait until the download starts,…you don't need to click anything else,…and then choose Save down here at the bottom.…It says the download's completed.…Great, I'll close my browser and press Start e…to open up Explorer.…I'll go into Downloads and here's the UNetbootin…file that I downloaded.…
I also have the ISO file I downloaded earlier.…I'll open UNetbootin and I've got my USB plugged in…and it sees it as Drive F.…So here I'll choose Diskimage,…I'll click to select the Diskimage file…and navigate to my Downloads,…and then I'll choose the Fedora image.…This process will completely erase everything…that's on the flash drive, so make sure…that there's nothing on yours that you wanna save,…then press OK.…This process will take a while.…When the process is done, choose Exit…and then you can Eject the drive.…

Q: Why don't the VirtualBox Guest Additions install properly on Fedora 23?
A: It seems that the VirtualBox Guest Additions don’t like the version of the X.Org Server software that comes with the Fedora 23 ISO. Before installing the additions, make sure to run:
sudo dnf update
This will get the latest version of X.Org Server (currently 1.18). After that, restart the VM. Then run:
sudo dnf install gcc kernel-devel-$(uname -r)
This command installs the gcc compiler and updated kernel headers, which the Guest Additions need in order to build themselves. $(uname -r) takes the output of the uname -r command, which returns the current kernel version number, and uses it to request to install the correct version for your system. Then try installing the Guest Additions again. You should see "Installing X.Org Server 1.18 modules [ OK ].” Restart the system again, and the full-screen feature should work.
