Live images allow you to preview OS before installing it. Instead of booting directly into the installer, a live image loads the same environment you’ll get after installation. Workstation and Spins are live images. Use a live image to install your favorite system, test on new hardware, troubleshoot, or share with friends.
DVD images boot directly into the installation enviroment, and allow you to choose from a variety of packages that are provided with it. The DVD option is only available in the Server Edition. Use the Server DVD image when you want customized Fedora Server installations using an offline installation source.
The netinstall image boots directly into the installation environment, and uses the online package repositories as the installation source. With a netinstall image, you can select a wide variety of packages to create a customized installation. The Server netinstall image is a universal one, and can be used to install any Edition or your own set of favorite packages.
For many ARM systems, Fedora provides preconfigured filesystem images. Write the image to removable media and boot directly into installation that’s ready to use. ARM devices often require special setup procedures that aren’t covered in this guide.
Cloud images are preconfigured filesystem images with very few packages installed by default. They include special tools for interacting with cloud platforms, and are not intended to be used outside of cloud environments. Fedora Cloud comes in several varieties. The Cloud Base image is a minimal base for cloud deployments. The Cloud Atomic image is a Docker container host that uses Project Atomic technology for updates. A Docker base image is also available.
The tiny images at https://boot.fedoraproject.org/ are written to CDs, USB drives, or even floppy disks. The BFO image loads installation media from Fedora’s servers and directly loads an installation environment, like the netinstall ISO. BFO images work like PXE deployments, without having to set up a server.
