How to deal with your Fedora distro and Windows 10 using usb stick.

Today I will told about one great way to test it Fedora distro with one usb stick and Windows 10.
I don't want to make one video tutorial because you will try to follow the images and is more good for you to understend the steps.
This method of getting your usb stick with your Fedora distro and deal under your Windows 10 to make this goal:
Upload your Fedora into your usb stick then make copy of usb stick (vmdk file) to run under Windows 10.
First the usb stick will need to have a good size great than 15 or 20GB (with autopartition).
Also usb device legacy support 2.0 and great will be very good.
My CPU is this and working well: >wmic cpu get caption Caption Intel64 Family 6 Model 58 Stepping 9
I have a NVIDIA GPU , but fedora come with default nouveau graphics device driver.
You can use some tutorial to replace it with proprietary Nvidia/ATI video driver.
I used the VirtualBox with usb enable and this allow me to select the usb stick for Fedora instalation, see:
 
I download the Fedoara 24 distro with a light enviroment.You can use MATE , XFCE enviroments.
Take a look also to Fedora Spins.
To make this easy for you - just get the Fedora Live from here.
If you want to used Fedora 24 with 64-bit or any 64-bit Linux and Windows then select under your BIOS to enable options: Intel (R) Virtualization Technology was enabled and Intel (R) VT-d Feature was also enabled.
Select from Windows the Hyper-V option to be enable for 64-bit Live CD with Windows Key + q to open the Search box and typed in: turn windows features.
The window will be come with one Hyper-V checkbox and then you need to select that enabled.
Make new Virtual Machine with Fedora select from settings your video , memory and check the usb driver. Select from Storage - Controller IDE and check enable LiveCD and upload the .iso file image with the OpenDialog.
Your virtual hard disk will be great than 8 Gb and also can be any type.
This just allow you to run Fedora Live CD to install Fedora into your usb stick.
After install you can create one virtual file from your usb stick. C:\Program Files\Oracle\VirtualBox>VBoxManage.exe internalcommands createrawvmdk -filename C:\usb.vmdk -rawdisk \\.\PhysicalDrive1 RAW host disk access VMDK file C:\usb.vmdk created successfully.
This file can be run under VirtualBox also by using create one new virtual machine with usb stick vmdk file.
Make same settings with usb checked and video and memory.
When you need to select the virtual hard disk then select: Use existing hard disk and select your .vmdk file.
To be able to deal with fedora the you can read also this:Installation_Guide.
This will show how to customize all into Fedora distro.
