Creating Fedora 28 Beta Live USB drive in Fedora PC

If you are running Fedora on your system already, I would recommend using Fedora media writer app to create the live USB drive.

Step 1) Plugin a USB flash drive of minimum 6GB capacity. The flash drive will be erased completely and formatted during the process. Make sure the flash drive is mounted.

Step 2) Go to “Activities” > “Software”.

Step 3) Look for “Fedora Media Writer” in the search box, and then Click “Fedora Media Writer”.
