Fedora 25 on Dply cloud

Fedora 25 is now available on Dply. Dply is a new experimental cloud provider which lets you run an instance for two hours at a time — for free, with no catch. That means that with a few clicks, you can try Fedora 25 from the comfort of your home, school, or coffeeshop.

You’ll need:

  • A GitHub account — Dply uses this for login. Sign up for GitHub if you don’t have an account already.
  • An SSH public key, to access your server once it’s running. There are instructions for creating one in the Fedora System Administrator’s Guide.
  • That SSH public key added to your GitHub account, so Dply can use it. GitHub has instructions for adding your public key.
  • Of course, a web browser, an ssh client, and a network connection.

  1. I have two hard drives sda /fedora, sdb/Windows10 and the /boot/efi partition is on the sdb/windows10 drive
    how can I show fedora where the/boot/efi is ?

    Would a command mkconfig -o grub solve the problem ?

    But, I’m not sure how to type out the mkconfig -o command.

  2. Hi I did the installation, but after access windows 10, the menu to chose fedora stop showing at boot. What can I do to get the dual boot menu again?

  3. When I click on done I get this error which says for a uefi install you must includw an EFI system partition on a gpt-formatted disk , mounted at /boot/efi

      1. Same thing here, the EFI partition from Windows is visible only in “Unknown” dropdown menu, in the “New Fedora 25 Installation” there are no partitions shown at all its blank and when i add a root partition there click done it show this message as above ” for a uefi install you must includw an EFI system partition on a gpt-formatted disk , mounted at /boot/efi “. There is a EFI partition but its only in Windows/Unknown part in the installer

  4. Hi, firstly, thank you a lot for this tutorial, it worked really well at first. Unfortunately, after one day the performances of Windows 10 dropped drastically. Booting time has become 5 times higher and also working performances are very slow (opening a very light pdf file takes more than a minute). What can it be? Is there anything I can do? Thank you a lot in advance 🙂

  5. I have a question, I followed all the steps and created a 32 gigabytes partition using the Windows disk management utility, but when I booted from the live usb containing the Fedora image and tried to install it alongside my Windows 10 system the SSD was showing all its capacity as free, so I didn’t proceed cause I wouldn’t want to wipe my entire SSD and loose Windows and all my files.
    Do any of you know why this happened? My laptop is the ASUS Zenbook UX305CA

    1. I’ve seen this happen when installing Ubuntu or another distribution based on it, but not with Fedora.

      Did you navigate to the installer manual disk partitioning tool? If not, try doing that and see if you can install from there.

  6. i have a real question that i seethat actually no1 do ask it,why the hell i need 2 partitions ? 1 for root and 1 for home ? i see it pointless and more time for linux to work by lookin always for links to another place,why not just make 1 partition as root and that is all ?,do i need to make 100 partitions to have all the /something on another 1 ? what will be the point for that ? just to have lots and lots of partitions ?

    1. /home, whether it occupies its own partition or just a directory under the root partition, is where your daily computing activities take place. If on its own partition when a rouge app begins to chew up all the space, for example, your root partition, all things being equal, will be spared.

      However, if /home is a directory under the root partition when something begins to go wrong under /home, there goes your whole system. That’s the simplest reason we encourage putting /home on its own partition.

  7. You need to update grub immediately after installation od fedora25. Downloaded gub fails booting win7, win7 boot just shows a blinking curser in the left upper corner of your screen.

    You need to run a “sudo dnf update grub* -y” after the fedora installation.

  8. Good evening. I don’t agree. If you trust in the security provided with Linux, you never should virtualize a Linux System over any Windows platform. That’s the esence in dual boot, to isolate completely the system, not using it like a program inside another system.

  9. It’s of some academic interest to know you can do this, but dual-booting is in my mind outmoded. More sensible is to either set up a Windows VM on Linux or Linux VM on Windows. Rather than choosing Windows OR Linux, you have Windows AND Linux.
