How To Install Fedora Linux As Virtual Machine - DIGITAL Updates

Hi, you are in my niche post about how to install Fedora in VMware or virtual box I discussed both installations below while the Installation of Fedora Linux is simple and Flexible and the second positive point is that Fedora is very easy to use and is decent operating system but Fedora cannot be installed on some PCs.Because of Bios if you have a slow PC then do not try Fedora.Because I already Lost my HP-8440p because of it But no problem you can choose other operating systems from here.

0.) Download Vmware and Virtualbox.

If your PC is 64 bit I suggest VMware Workstation.before downloading VMware please search a little bit on your PC that whether it supports virtualization technology you can see it in BIOS.


If your PC is 32 bit only Virtualbox will work.And bear this In your mind you Have to choose 32-bit kernel operating system files because of these lines on virtual box's site."Please note that the package architecture must fit your host operating system architecture. So if you are running a 32-bit kernel on a 64-bit capable CPU you have to install the32-bit version (x86/amd64)".
Download Oracle Virtual Box.

NOTE: You must Need anyone of them For Installing Linux Distributions On Your PC without deleting or Harming Windows.The installation Process Is Simple and doesn't need Any instructions but in case if you are stuck you Can Ask Without Hesitation.I guarantee the one who chooses VMware workstation will be in 80℅ less trouble.if they choose according to their kernel versions.

1.) DOWNLOADING Fedora Workstation .ISO.

In order to download Fedora .ISO Click Below Link and find Other Downloads and choose according to your Guest OS kernel Like what you see in below image you can check your kernel by right clicking on my computer and look for properties.

2.) After Completing installation Move ISO image To your desired directory.And open VMware or virtual box. Then click on create a new Virtual machine for VMware or Only new for the VirtualBox as you see in above screen will appear.



1.D) People with VMware select typical installation.and click next in order to be smart and choose from default options mainly remember "Only Proud Swimmers SINK In water."

1.E) Now choose ISO file of Fedora which you downloaded in step 1.So Vmware will be able to Make a virtual CD or DVD For you to Install Kali.Without .ISO file it's like A Car without Engine

1.F) Now select Linux and choose Fedora 64 or 32 
according to your Kernel version you can check your kernel version by right clicking on computer and choosing properties then find the word bit in it it will be either 32 or 64.

1.G) Now Set Name And directory/location where you wants to keep your guest operating system files and name Of The operating system which is just shown to you for differentiating between other operating systems In your VMware workstation.

1.H) Now select Virtual disk space means the maximum space that can be consumed by operating for Fedora the minimum size is 25 GB But I prefer to choose 30 GB For Smoothness.

1.I) Now review the hardware Configuration and start The Machine again If machine doesn't starts don't forget to ask me in contact form to seek any kind of help from us.

Follow After Virtual Box To Complete Remaining Steps.


1.D) Now Select Name Which will be shown to you For Differentiating in between different guest operating systems And then Choose Type Which is  Linux of course and then select version as Fedora 64 or 32.if you can't see Fedora in version drop-down pane then choose UBUNTU 64-bit if your kernel is 64 bit or select UBUNTU 32-bit for 32 bit OS.

1.E) Now choose at least 1 GB of memory size that is RAM (Random access memory) and click next.But please do not run Kali Linux if you see red line on or before 1 GB or you can be in trouble because Sudden shutdowns were notified.

1.F) Create a new virtual hard disk. Select the second option “create a new virtual hard disk now“. Hit the "create” button.the virtual Hard disk will be the primary hard disk of Guest Operating System.

1.G) Choose your Hard Disk file type as VDI and click next then choose dynamically allocated you can Also set fixed size because Dynamically seems to be a better option for us instead if sucking whole hard disk storage at once it's better to increase size as per usage.

1.H) Choose your hard disk size From 30 to 35 GB for Good performance.But at least 30 GB is required. and type the name of new virtual guest OS upon the slide bar and Now Click Create.

(1)Choose storage
(2)choose Empty
(3)Click on DVD icon next to IDE Secondary Master
(4) Choose a Virtual CD/DVD disk file, Which is the Fedora ISO you have downloaded. Click OK.And now start the engine.



1.) When you boot the first time you will see a boot menu asking you how to boot highlight live boot and hit enter.

2.) After selecting live boot you will land on the desktop where you will see a window already open "Welcome to Fedora" Click install to hard drive.

3.) Now a new window will appear asking you for language select English and English US and click continue.And It's up to you if you want to choose another language as it will be the language of the entire operating system.

4.) Now you will land on the installation page asking you for keyboard layout Date and time Installation destination and network and hostname only click those with yellow ! exclamation mark
and change accordingly but for the installation, destination read point 5.

5.) Now click on installation destination and choose virtual hard disk and point out automatically configure.You will never ever see your Physical hard disk until you complete the installation.

6.) Now Click Begin Installation and in new window select root password first according to your wish and memory ;) and remember it will be the administrator password for Linux administrator is known as root in Linux.

7.) Now again from the same menu click user creation because Fedora won't let you log in as root for security.And type their your name username and password.

8.) Now let the installation complete itself and then click quit and reboot.But VirtualBox user does not start again after shutting down before reading and completing the task.

After the installation gets done you have to Remove the Fedora ISO image. Go to settings and choose storage under the Controller: IDE clicks on ISO which you attached first and chooses Remove Attachment. This step is very important otherwise, the installation will restart.
