The black screen issue occurs when the ISO is unable to connect to the server. Unfortunately, the current version of the image does not report such errors and such error reporting should be fixed in the coming version.
Please try to boot into the image again after adding "https://rhie-poa.redhat.com/*" to the allow list. If you still have problems, please try to reach the support team using the chat option in the exam confirmation email.
If all fails, I'm afraid you will have to try to connect to the exam on a network without firewall restrictions.
There are no specific requirements and Red Hat only ask for an external camera with 1m cable length. However, I would look for cameras that can focus text on ID cards. We have noticed that some external webcams and laptop's integrated webcams fail to adjust their focus automatically and make them unreadable.
I have not come across this error with the remote exam USB but going through the Linux/fedora forums, it appears this occurs on certain Asus motherboards and custom hard drive setups.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to help you troubleshoot/fix this and I would suggest creating a fresh USB and test it on another device.
I have a exam this friday, it downloaded a new version of the iso, booted it, but the comp check says my internet connection is not fast enough. (i need 4g or 1M connection it says), everything else is green, could it be the wifi check?
Which i kind of strange, because i have my laptop wired and a FTTH 100/100MB connection which is more then fast enough.
i had a chat with support, the servers are to busy to i could ignore the issue
Hello @rmokkink ,
I'm glad you got your answer from one of the support staff.
It appears the compatibility test has been tweaked and the speed requirements have been made tougher than they should have been. As long as you have decent connection speeds, please ignore this error for now and we will soon have this false error fixed.
