Here is another Hyper-v and Linux article about how to install Linux Fedora on Hyper-v Windows 10. The Linux Fedora (formerly Fedora Core) is an operating system based on the Linux kernel, developed by the community-supported Fedora Project and sponsored by Red Hat.

Install Linux Fedora on Hyper-v

For prerequisites to install Linux Fedora on Hyper-v, you must have the Linux Fedora image or DVD. To download the Image, go to its official website and download Linux Fedora. The downloaded image is a live Fedora. The Fedora Workstation Live image allows you to make media for your computer that provides a complete, running Fedora Workstation you can run right away. You can use the Live image to test and play with Fedora without making changes to your hard disk. When you are ready, you can install Fedora to your hard disk from the Live image.

To use this image, you need a drive that can create or “burn” DVDs, or a USB flash drive at least as big as the image.

While you are installing Linux Fedora on Hyper-v, you don’t need to have a bootable USB. Because you can use this image directory to install it on Hyper-v or other virtualization software.

1. Open the Hyper-V on Windows 10 and create a virtual machine for Fedora Linux. If you are new with Hyper-v, try to read the Hyper-v for beginners article. A Linux installation on Hyper-v article will help you better.

2. When you have created a virtual machine, open and run with Linux Fedora Image. It will load the Fedora boot section.

    Probably you should warn people that this f’ing Fedora Workstation executable will evaporate the contents of any external USB drive (including my 3 Tb backup drive with 10 god damned years of photographs) if you happen to accidentally click the “write image when download completes” checkbox. As it happens, my external USB hard drive was plugged in at the time and Fedora’s god damned “Fedora Workstation” utility nuked 10 years of my creative life when it blithely wiped the drive without so much as a single f’ing warning. So much for bulls*&t open source software.

    And here ends the importance of keeping a backup!

    Sounds like you messed up huge! I’m sorry to hear that. If you didn’t lose your cool and still have the drive and haven’t written much else to it since; we you may be able to salvage some of the pics. I hope you didn’t get mad and blame everything else and make more mistakes out of anger. Just because something is erased, doesn’t mean it is gone anymore.
