    Installing Fedora 26 Beta on a MacBook Air

    Since Fedora 26 Beta came out a few days ago, I decided it was a great time to throw it on my 13" MacBook Air. This MacBook Air is a model number A1466 EMC 2925 which looks like a 2015ish model, 8gb mem, 2.2GHz i7, 512gb ssd. First thing I did was download the beta. You can grab it from the...
