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.

yes. ". I went into the BIOS and under -> Display, I selected 'Hybrid Graphics' instead of 'Discrete Graphics'. This allowed Fedora to boot.."
Some computers allow you to switch the Video card and it may resolve the issue

Just to confirm, I have a test 3 days from now. I have had the same boot issue with the usb getting stuck at "100 percent redhat environment" I recieved confirmation that older iso provided above is still valid. here is a link to the chat with a redhat help desk I had today. https://safe.menlosecurity.com/doc/docview/viewer/docN9724A5E0DE4Eab3cdaccf38d8e1a313019c45d8386de73.... I hope this helps. thanks

I was not getting stuck at 100% but at the DELL logo during startup, I switched to a laptop with older specs and it worked fine

Hello @piyushgaur123 

If the USB is not detected, it could be due to several reasons:

1. Due to Secure boot settings in Startup Security Utility

- These settings will make sure that your Mac always starts up from a legitimate, trusted operating system. 

2. Allowed Boot media 

- This feature is used to control whether your Mac can start up from external or removable media.

3. The latest M1 chipset-based Mac computers may have compatibility issues with booting externally from the Fedora Workstation operating system and its derivatives. To isolate the issue, you may test the prepared USB on a different system(if available). 

We have the new version of ISO released, you may test this if it is not the one which you have downloaded already.

Hope it helps!

I have changed the security settings from full to no. After multiple tries, it worked after using Fedora Media Writer for MacOS.

However, it doesn't detect wifi drivers. The Mouse and Keyboard also don't work. I had an external mouse connected which was working. 

IMHO this is really problematic and exam environments should be easier to access and doesn't have to be this complicated.
