Red Hat provide a very clear ebook that helps you prepare for your exams. It includes explanations on which hardware you can use.

To quote the book:

  • Are there known issues with Mac systems?

    Our tests passed a MacBook Pro and MacBook Air belonging to the 2016 and 2017 series.

    2018 and later series of Mac systems have been found to have compatibility issues with several Linux distributions. These issues impact the remote exam LiveUSB image as well. The issues include:

  • T2 security system prevents booting from an external device by default.

  • 2019 MacBook Pro keyboard and touchpad doesn’t work when booted from external media.

  • Other internal components, such as webcam, microphone, and wifi adapters are not detected by many Linux distributions.

  • Latest Mac systems with M1 chipsets do not work with the remote exam LiveUSB

If your system encounters these issues, use another laptop that meets the system requirements and passes the compatibility test.
