Install Fedora CoreOS on bare metal machine using the next image.


  1. Download and verify the latest FCOS next image for bare metal machines. Choose your preferred installation source (ISO for an optical or USB drive, PXE for a network install or Raw for a direct disk copy to a hard drive.)
  2. Familiarize yourself with FCOS provisioning philosophy, i.e. the role of a an Ignition file during system installation.

How to test

  1. Create an Ignition file. You can use the simplest example available.
  2. Follow Installing CoreOS on Bare Metal documentation to install FCOS to a bare metal machine.
  3. Log in to your new FCOS system (with the username and password configured in your Ignition file) using the text console.
  4. See the IP address printed at the login prompt (alternatively, you can also find it in the ip address command output).
  5. SSH into the machine using ssh username@ipaddress (replace username and ipaddress with actual values).

Expected Results

  1. The system runs on a bare metal machine according to the instructions.
  2. You can connect through serial console and SSH.
  3. The linked documentation is clear, all steps are understandable, and nothing important is missing from it.
