How to identify if your system supports UEFI?

How to test?

Update your machine

See the instructions on the Rawhide page on the various ways in which you can install or update to Rawhide.

Live Image

Optionally, you may download a non-destructive rawhide live image for your architecture:

  • [PLACEHOLDER i386]
  • [PLACEHOLDER x86_64]

Tips on how to use the Live image are available at FedoraLiveCD.

Latest syslinux?
Creating a LiveUSB of this rawhide image requires the latest version of syslinux, which is currently available in Rawhide and in the latest Windows liveusb-creator. Users of F10 and below can
# yum --enablerepo=rawhide update syslinux
