Fair enough, but that's not what you implied in your earlier messages.

I still can't get my head round what you're trying to do. If you have a
Live USB stick, then why not install from that? Once you've done so, you
can easily install extra stuff from the DVD if you have it. You can even
do it from an ISO image of the DVD on your Windows partition (it'll mean
mounting the partition under Linux and using a loopback mount for the
image, but one thing at a time).

What you haven't mentioned, either because you haven't realized it's
necessary or because it's too obvious to bring up, is that you have to
partition your hard disk to add space for Linux. Don't expect to be able
to boot and run Fedora from a file in your Windows system (I think
Ubuntu supports doing this if it's what you really want, but you'd need
to ask elsewhere about that).
