Install Fedora 29 KDE Plasma Desktop (KDE GUI)

SCREENSHOT 11) Installation destination – choose your disk to install Fedora 29.

Ensure the automatic storage configuration is selected. This will erace all of the data on the disk and will install a clean copy with default disk layout (if you have more than 20G free storage the setup will try to reuse your current layout if possible. Here we do not have free space!). If you want a specific installation you should choose “Custom” or “Advanced Custom(Blivet-GUI)” (these options are beyond the scope of this article). Click on “Done” – no confirmation will be asked.

If your disk does not have any partitions and all the space is unallocated you would not be asked any questions. Click on “Reclaim space” – all your data on this drive will be erased!!!
