I think he means extracting the .iso to one partition and using it to
install Fedora on the rest of the drive (or even on a different drive)
while not reformatting that partition. I'm not sure why he wants to do
this, but it does look like it should be possible.
i believe you 2 are speculating too much as to op's intent.
op states that he can boot on other boxen, but not the one. nothing
about install from live.
as has been written in many post on most all linux support list,
a live boot is a great way to test boxen to see if hardware is
compatible with intended version, which is in part what op found
out with boxen that he did have a hardware problem and he need
to disable "smp" because it is a "non SMP machine".
as such, to test rest of hardware, he has to get past cpu problem.
such is not to guess his actual. it is only to comment as to why
one might wish to boot a boxen with a live operating system.
