Red Hat remote exam on AMD

Hi!

Anyone here had success with AMD processor  ?

In below pdf, Red Hat says many intel ... what about AMD ?

System requirements
-  Computer: You will need a computer with a single active monitor. Red Hat supports
many Intel-compatible X86_64-bit architecture computers.

When I tried compatibility test on my AMD Laptop, even after 1 hours it just hangs at 100%, same USB stick I tried on intel machine it works! unfortunately intel machine is having some other problem, so I can't use for exams.

Please refer my post for more details.

The old ISO is still valid to run the Exam, if you pass the compatibility test with it

There some reported issues with AMD Ryzen and Nvidia cards. Better use a different computer
