This tutorial will show you the simple steps of installing a modern Linux Distribution like Fedora 30 Workstation with Gnome for the user graphical interface. First, we present the basic steps for installing the Operating system in addition to your present operating systems (here we also have Windows 10) and then you can see some screenshots of the installed system and the look and feel of it. We have other tutorials showing more screenshots of the installed and working Fedora 29 (Gnome and KDE plasma) – so you can decide which of them to try first – coming soon.
The Fedora 30 Workstation comes with
- Xorg X server – 1.20.4 XWayland is used by default
- GNOME (the GUI) – 3.32.1
- linux kernel – 5.0.9
Check out our article about what software is included in comming soon.

Our system was pretty good – Asus X399 with AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X and NVIDIA 1080 Ti and the setup loaded successfully and there were no problems till the end.
We used the following ISO for the installation process:
It is a LIVE image so you can try it before installing. The easiest way is just to download the image and burn it to a DVD disk and then follow the installation below:

Choose the “UEFI: HL-DT-STDVDRAM…” to boot and install Fedora Workstation 30 with UEFI support. You should do this, because most of the new hardware like video cards would not work properly without being in UEFI mode.
