Hi VVignesh6
Yes, of course, you can use any other application. There is a ton of them, just google "ISO to USB". Rufus is one of them.
By the way, I am not aware of Fedora Media Writer being broken. Better check and fix your Windows installation.

Thank you for the clarification. I will check and fix the Windows installation on my laptop, or I will use another ISO to USB application.

Make sure your Windows is 64bits. It looks to me you are running 32bits version and I am not sure Fedora Media Writer is supported there

Hi Team 

I'm preparing my laptop for remote exam , but having issues , first of all the fedora media write recommended in the PDF does not work ! The Fedora Media Writer simply shuts down when it is requested to burn USB Drivr with the ISO file downloaded for exam purpose from Redhay. So I had used a different software rufus.exe to burn the USB disk with Red Hat supplied boot ISO image . This time the ISO is burnt and image is wriiten to USB flash drive. But when I edit BIOS settings and choose to boot from USB - the BIOS is not able to load the OS Image from USB Drive , and it defaults to next option which is Windows , and boots the Laptop with Windows . 

 

Can anyone suggest what steps should be taken to resolve these issues ? There are two issues here that I have reported - you will notice in the para above. 

 

Please suggest on urgent basis . 

Thanks.

Hi
You have 2 unrelated issues. Fedora Media Writer works. There is something wrong with your probably Windows. It is ok to use RUFUS. The USB stick does not boot probably because the Secure Boot is Enabled in your BIOS. Make sure with your local IT you can disable it. Then it should start booting.

Hi,
Try booting the ISO in Legacy mode, if you booted in UEFI
Try booting the ISO in UEFI mode, if you booted in Legacy
Make sure your laptop has 8 GB RAM or more
Make sure to unplug all other unnecessary USB devices and memory media
Let me know if it works. If not, report your laptop model to the RedHat support

Hello 

I have tried both options , but none of them works unfortunately - for both options the boot process hangs with kernel panic ; So I reported the case to Exam support , and provided them all details . Now the Support Tells me that my Brand of Laptop (IdeaPad 330) can cause compatibility issues with the Exam ISO !! 

This isn't expected at all - so I have asked fthem for a list of Brand of Computers that your Exam ISO is compatible with ? What happens if I purchase a new Laptop (from another brand) and run into the same issues ? I hope someone from support answers that question before closing the ticket ;

 

Regards,

Punyabrata Roy
