New Remote Exam ISO just released

Hi, it looks the new ISO has been released
It seems to solve Secure Boot compliance issue but it may also bring some new compatibility issues. The size of the ISO remains similar, the MD5 is: a8a2c255852711dcde691508e703d989
Intel x64 architecture and min. 8GB RAM is still required.
Please note the PDF manual and Bot shoudl be updated soon.
I was informed the previous ISO may still be used if you had downloaded it already.
The link to the current ISO is still the same:
https://red.ht/rhrex

Enjoy

I tried now creating another USB drive using dd method, but it wouldn't boot either, it wouldn't get to that starting screen. So I tried writing the image on it again and now it is apparently dead. Can't partition or format it.

usb thumb drive cannot be killed like this.. Just find a SW that will remove all the partitions.. Without trying to read them. They are encrypted. I had sent you a link to SW that does it

@morbius The previous version of image is still active. If you've created the live USB with that version and still have it with you, you can use the same live USB to take the exam even now.

Ok, found another USB drive, with it it's the same error as with the first one. The image md5 checks out, so I can now confirm for sure that the new image doesn't work with this laptop. Surprising, considering that the previous two images booted fine.

The USB drive that failed was unreliable from the start, it was probably always defective garbage.

In the previous RHRE.v20230630.F.40d671d my exam failed as it required to run in Chrome or Chromium but the image contained Firefox. I needed to perform the exam from my laptop in the end - very disappointing. (this happened 2024-01-29) Is this also resolved or the RHRE is still firefox based?

the recently released ISO was rolled back. So the v20230630 is currently the one you download for the exam.

I seems that the link is now downloading the old image. If i use the link in your post then i got the "rhexboot-2023-06" with the hash from the old image.

Please archive/remove all old posts indicating incorrect versions of the exam ISO.
Seeing this post along several existing older posts (which appear first in search results) is very confusing.
Especially since after following the link in the post downloads a file named rhrexboot-2023-06.iso and has an md5sum different from what is mentioned in that post.
Having to read through the replies of replies to see that the new image was rolled back is not very convenient.
Please make sure that the information on the link, name and md5sum of the latest ISO is easily findable.
Preferably this information should be available on https://www.redhat.com/en/resources/certification-remote-exams-FAQ as well and be up to date.
I would also appreciate if the post https://learn.redhat.com/t5/Certification-Resources/Getting-Ready-for-your-Red-Hat-Remote-Exam/ba-p/... was updated whenever a new ISO is available.
