Fedora 31 : Can be better? part 002.

If you want to have a USB device with the Fedora distro then the Fedora team comes with this solution, see the webpage.
Now let's make all easier for this issue. Detect your USB device...
[mythcat@desk ~]$ lsblk 
NAME            MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
...
sdb               8:16   1   984M  0 disk 
└─sdb1            8:17   1   983M  0 part 
Be sure the USB drive has bootable flag enable:
[mythcat@desk Downloads]$ sudo fdisk /dev/sdb

Welcome to fdisk (util-linux 2.34).
Changes will remain in memory only, until you decide to write them.
Be careful before using the write command.

Umount your USB drive, do not remove it.
[mythcat@desk ~]$ sudo umount /dev/sdb
Copy the Fedora file image iso to the USB device with the dd command:
[mythcat@desk ~]$ sudo dd if=Fedora-Server-netinst-x86_64-31-1.9.iso of=/dev/sdb

You can test it with the qemu tool:
[mythcat@desk ~]$ sudo qemu-system-x86_64 -hda /dev/sdb
