i’m having some issues with the boot of the Remote Exam Live ISO.
During the preparation for the Remote Exam for ROL Course DO288, i tried to boot my Laptop using the Remote Exam Live ISO. I'm following the docs available here: https://www.redhat.com/en/resources/remote-exams-preparation-ebook.
Downloaded https://static.redhat.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboot.iso and written it to USB Stick by using the dd utility.
The boot process is starting until the screen "environment is loading into memory" appears, it counts up to 100% and then nothing more is happening.
I tried different USB-Stick, always the same result.
For tests, i also used the rhrexboot-2020-08.iso Image, which i found as reference in an redhat Issue description, this one is working for me. Boot is without error, and the hardware compatibility checks are successful.
I plan to do the exam soon, thanks to advice how to proceed. I only have one Laptop available for the training/exam, it's a Lenovo Thinkpad P50.
Be careful. The older ISO does not make some network quality checks as the current ISO does. It lets you start the exam but you may have network performance issues later. Using the current ISO is safer
Do we think that we could base the remote examine image on the latest fedora?
I am able to boot/install/run my AMD system with an Intel ARC GPU without any issues on Fedora Core 38.
Currently, the Remote exam environment is being ported to Fedora 37. It should resoleve some compatibility issues. The date of releasing is not known
Is there a location that can be checked to monitor when new boot iso images are ported/released? I have the same issue here with my newer laptop failing to boot any of the images so will be using an older laptop for my exams. If there was somewhere to monitor/check periodically to see if a new iso has been released that would be good vs downloading and checking the md5 against what I have already tried.
