You don’t need to install the OS. It will be a Live Os (like any other Live
Os)

It won’t install anything on your local machine.. even it won’t touch any
files or disks. (You cannot access your local hard disk basically)

You just need a laptop or workstation with accessories as needed.

Is network cable connection really mandatory?

I mean nowadays wifi is pretty stable, never had a problems with it since mid 2000s. Plus I can use my phone usb modem as fallback in case of any trouble (wich most likely won't be).

On the other hand I'm having additional problems connecting cable to my laptop because I need an adapter and I don't have cable on premise and even if I find all of this I'm not sure this solution will be stable.

As per the student guide, it is not mandatory to have a wired connection
but strongly recommended to avoid network slowness and glitches. As we all
now the exam will happen in remote workstation and network speed is needed
to get proper access, camera and desktop streaming etc.

The ideal way is to boot and do compatibility test multiple times days
before the exam. In case you have any slowness you will get enough time to
fix and troubleshoot.

In case helpful:

Hi. I installed the remote exam image on the USB but get a black screen after my PC is rebotted and the image is loaded. The screen flickers if the keyboard or mouse is clicked. It is otherwise non-responsive. Please advise as I have an exam scheduled within a week.

You didn’t mention which workstation you are using (PC or Mac).
There are some reported issues for Mac. Also for some PC models.

Do you have an option to check with other PCs

Hi.

I am using my personal Dell Inspirion Windows 10 PC. The only other computer I have is my work laptop and writing to the USB is disabled. Thus I need to get this working in order to take the exam in a few days.

Do you have an exact model of the Dell Inspirion? I wonder if there is a specific issue with the model you have in combination with Fedora (the distribution that the Red Hat exam is based on).

Hi all,

I have en exam on Monday. I just run the compatibility test from live image: On hardware compatibility page I was able to see feeds from my two webcams (laptop built-in and external) but on the next page (streaming compatibility) only internal webcam feed is shown.

Did this mean that I have issue with my external webcam or I can ignore this since it was detected on hardware check?

thank you.
