Cannot Boot Remote Exam Live ISO USB for Remote Exam, Boot hanging at 100%

Jump to solution

Hello all,

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.

Greetings

Oliver

The issue you are experiencing is a compatibility issue and using an older ISO currently available at https://static.redhat.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboot-2020-08.iso

resolves it.

However, though you can still use the old ISO now, the users are advised to download the current ISO several days before the exam and test it.
It is very likely the ISO you download in the future will already support your computer, apart from other necessary features it might have in order to improve your exam experience.
The termination date of the older ISO is not known yet, we expect it to happen in days or weeks.
We recommend you contact the Support team by raising a ticket or by chat in case you have any issues or doubts concerning the current ISO in several days ahead of the exam.

Hello,

I have the same issue on a Medion AKOYA MD661550.  Starting at 100% then again to 0% and at the end hanging at 100%.  Working fine with old iso mentioned above.
New iso also no working on macbook pro (with only USB-c), not easy to have enough adapters to attach usb keyboard/webcam ....
Not tested with old iso yet.

Maybe this helps, I am still using a USB that I prepared a year ago (June 2020) and I sat an exam last Friday without any issues.

Hi Palanivelrajan,

yes, i confirm the ISO https://static.redhat.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboot-2020-08.iso is working with P50. Meanwhile, i did my exam and this ISO was working without any problems.
