Install Fedora Workstation 39 (Gnome GUI)

SCREENSHOT 11) Fedora Workstation 39 needs ~5.72 GiB of available space on the selected disk at least!

If there is below the requested size of free (available disk) space the setup will offer you to free some space by removing existing data (partitions). If the selected disk is with important data and you do not know what you are doing, stop and don’t continue! If this hard drive is with no important data you may proceed by clicking on “Reclaim space”.

main menu
Installation destination – Reclaim space

SCREENSHOT 12) Delete all of the data is the easiest way when you have unnecessary data on the disk and you decided to remove all the data from the disk.

Click on “Delete all” if this is the case. Be careful not to remove something you might need in the future! If you know what you are doing you can free some space (make it available i.e. enough unpartitioned space (~7 GiB at least), which is what the setup needs to proceed) by deleting or shrinking the existing partitions.

Installation destination – Delete All

SCREENSHOT 13) Click on “Reclaim space” to confirm the operation in the previous step – deleting or shrinking of partitions.

You can see the operations in the “Action” column, which will be performed on the selected disk after the installation setup begins its actual work. In our case we wanted to delete all data on the disk, so there are two Delete actions pending…

Installation destination Reclaim space

SCREENSHOT 14) Now the installation setup is configured and by clicking on “Begin Installation” the actual installation on your selected hard drive begins.

The actual installation begins and first the disk must be prepared, so after clicking the very button the disk layout will be changed according to the last 3 steps.
