Windows 7: Fedora 15 installation won't boot in a USB Flashdrive

Fedora 15 installation won't boot in a USB Flashdrive

I'm thinking of dual booting Windows 7 with Fedora 15. I had the installer of Fedora 15 in my freshly reformatted USB flashdrive and used LiveUSB Creator to convert Fedora 15's ISO to a bootable installer in my USB flashdrive. I also had already set the BIOS to boot first the removable media followed by the DVD drive. The trouble is, the Fedora 15 won't boot after resetting the PC. How do I make the USB Flashdrive boot up the installer for this OS?

You may want to give UNetbootin a try. It's all I've ever used to make a Linux bootable USB and it has never failed me.

UNetBootin apparently doesn't support Fedora 15 yet. Also, are there issues regarding Windows 7 and Fedora having trouble booting together especially with the current version of Fedora which is Fedora 15?

FYI, Unetbootin definitely works with the newest Fedora. I am typing from a computer with a fresh install and I used Unetbootin.

When you open Unetbootin, there is a dropdown menu and Fedora 15 is not yet listed. If you pick one of the versions on that list, Unetbootin will download it for you. However, you can simply download the Fedora 15 .iso yourself. Then, in Unetbootin (at the bottom of the window) you can simply tell Unetbootin where to find the Fedora 15 .iso and it will take it from there.
