I've had DVD images for the last several versions of Fedora downloaded and mounted so as to serve as a local http install repository. I'm trying to do the same with Fedora 11.

If my memory serves me correctly, somewhere in the Fedora DVD image is a minimal booting CD image which I can burn to CD and get a boot disc, capable of booting a machine and launching an install that will run off of my mounted DVD repository.

I attempted to burn the file images/install.img but this yielded an unmountable disc, so I guess I picked wrong. Where is the boot image located within the DVD, if there is one?


I wasn't aware it was included on the DVD previously, but the netinstall image is available from fedoraproject.org, and the standard mirrors.

  • Yes, that's what I'm using unless someone lets me know there's another hiding on the DVD. It's what I used before I discovered the image on the DVD, actually. The boot.iso on the DVD is actually even more minimal than the netinst image. But it worked! – skiphoppy Sep 9 '09 at 17:59

Okay, looks like Fedora 8, 9, and 10 have an images/boot.iso file, but 11 does not. I guess I was the only one using it. :(

    No, actually I should supply it as an answer to my question, because it is an answer. People can rate it up or down as they see fit. – skiphoppy Aug 12 '10 at 14:49

  • Where did you find a Fedora 11 DVD with boot.iso on it? Mine doesn't have it. – skiphoppy Sep 9 '09 at 19:01
