Hi All, 

When I'm trying to perfrom my compatibility  test, at the following point I got stuck. 

1. Booted ISO image.

2. Once Wifi / LAN is configured. I get a pop up as attached once after that screen it just shows black screen.

Srikanth.

No, it looks like redhat provides a buggy image. I have the same issue.

Hi,

Is there any chance I can download an MBR based image? My PC doesn't seem to boot with the GPT one.

It does boot up in a weak laptop, in legacy mode only (no UEFI boot, just blank screen}. I have the same issue as described above (blank screen after the NW setup).

Thank you

Hi!
I have chated with one of support guy and he gave me the old ISO

https://static.redhat.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboot-2020-08.iso
I have tested it and apparently is working well, he also said that I can use it for the exam.

Good luck

Hi, yesteday i had the same problem as you report, but today I tried to boot with the SAME ISO I used yesterday and it works perfectly. Maybe is not an ISO problem, I think it can be a serevr problem from RedHat site.

Hi

There seems to be an issue accessing the URL embedded in the newest remote exam image. We are aware and are working to get this sorted.
 
In the meantime, if your exam is sometime soon, please use the older image which points to a different URL and still works. You can download it here - https://static.redhat.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboot-2020-08.iso
 
Its sha256 checksum is eda73a25d7d9b5eb51273c1773ee08297d17fb4430200125f3432d2f31ab594f

I apologize for the delay in responding here.

Regards,

Great, thank you, it works for me. It has MBR. Had some failed boots as some LVM monitoring service couldn't be started, but it works (still just legacy mode, doesn't work in UEFI).

I had to configure the Mic in the first screen where it allows me to setup the keyboard/etc...

Update:
The problems with the URL to which the new image was pointing has been fixed.

Hi @Gnanaprakasam ,

I just tested the new image and don't find any problems. The issue you faced is probably an isolated case. Please contact support with as many details as you can if you still have trouble with the new image.

Regards,
