Booting the exam environment stuck after showing 100%

I have created the bootable usb and able to boot my lenovo thinkpad with that. I had to turn off the secure boot option from BIOS to be able to boot. But while loading the exam environment it gets stuck at the end. I can see the big redhat icon in the middle of the screen and 100% loading status at the top-right corner. But can not move from this screen. No setting page comes as it mentioned in the exam preparation document.

I saw another post and downloaded another iso image from https://static.redhat.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboot-2020-08.iso
Thanks to @Fran_Garcia for the solution. But since the answer and the image is little old can someone confirm me it is still OK to use this image for my remote exam?

Hi @dimikhan ,

That is an older version of the remote exam image and can still be used for your exam.

Hello@vishals et all

Are you planning to fix this exam environment booting stuck issue in latest ISO as well?

I have faced the same issue in "Lenovo T470s" laptop and then I have to borrow a laptop for an exam.

Hi @skamboj ,

The team has reported it to the devs but I do not have an update on a fix yet.
I believe this issue was only reported in the T470 models. Do you know of other devices (other than the Lenovo T470) which cause the same problem?

Curiously, this problem has only been reported in the newer version of the remote exam image running on Fedora 33. The older version of the remote exam image, which runs on Fedora 32 does not have this problem. So, it could very well need a change from the Fedora project for this issue to go away.
In any case, I'll try to follow up with the devs for any update.

Regards,

My custom computer is also receiving the same issue, while my Lenovo Thinkpad laptop is able to boot it fine.

I give up to use my mac book-air(2018).

It can not boot with old iso.

 

I could boot my old mac book-air(2011) with old iso.

 

I will use it...

I am facing the same issue:

After booting from USB it say loaded 100% 

then slowly tries again from 0 to 100% and then just stucks nothing happens.

I am using MacBook Air (macOS Monterey 12.0.1, 8GB RAM, 1.6 GHz Dual Core Intel Core i5)

Now I am trying with rhrexboot-2020-08.iso hopefully it will work and remains valid for the exam, fingers crossed.
