yes, but afaik the OP is not trying to "upgrade" or "update" F11.
Rather he is using F11 and the F12 iso, (no LiveCD, no thumbdrive)
and following the "hard disk" install procedure for F12.
F11 is left entirely unchanged.
When complete he will still have his orig F11, and also
a brand new F12 in a separate partition.

Agreed, and that is the best reference
