another Fedora fan. While I have been able to install Ubuntu I really want
to try Fedora on this MID. The dev switch works as stated, it will erase
only the stateful partition (i.e. home/temp directory) interesting about
what you said about anaconda but the problem lies in the EFI boot process. I
just don't understand it enough. From what I have seen/read online there are
three kernel/rootfs partitions and a state partition the script I used
created an extra partition and installed Ubuntu there, so I should be able
to copy a fedora root in the same way.
