Hi I am facing difficulties to burn ISO rhrexboot.iso file to usb drive for remote RHCSA exam whil will start on 05 Jan 2023. please help to make this process properly.
Can you elaborate on the difficulties? Key points that will help us help you are:
I have an exam on Wednesday, 4 January. And I'm having problems with the exam LiveUSB. I formatted an pendrive using Fedora Media Writer and rhrexboot iso.
But every time I boot to the pendrive, I get stuck with the mobo symbol on screen, without signal of progression. I waited for 30 minutes and nothing. I think my system isn't compatible (AMD Ryzen CPU, NVIDIA RTX 30 Series) or maybe I have to change some setting in the BIOS.
Any help wil be much appreciated,
Yes, Latest model laptop/Pc with AMD Ryzen CPU, NVIDIA RTX 30 Series has compatibility issue with Live ISO. You can try an alternate system.
Red Hat has to cope with a few security concerns and challenges to protect its intellectual property and exam consistency. Creating a system bootable on the entire ever-expanding group of hardware is a difficult task, especially meeting the above-mentioned security and other criteria.
The Remote Exam ISO is a spin-off from the regular Fedora WorkStation 32 base image. We get a lot of candidates who have high-end gaming systems or the latest generation Apple systems that do not work with Remote Exam LiveUSB. It is a challenge to test various hardware available in the market and to develop an ISO compatible with all of them, our developers are doing their best to make the ISO compatible with the most commonly used systems.
Thanks for the reply @AnithaRaaji.
I successfully ran the exam ISO on an Dell laptop (intel CPU, nvidia MX 150 GPU) and another Ryzen Desktop (amd ryzen CPU, amd rx480 GPU). So I suppose the main problem in my case is the NVIDIA GPU of my PC. Just some info.
It would be nice to have a topic on the ebook "Red Hat remote exam" talking about hardware compatibility.
