Booting the exam environment stuck after showing 100%

I have created the bootable usb and able to boot my lenovo thinkpad with that. I had to turn off the secure boot option from BIOS to be able to boot. But while loading the exam environment it gets stuck at the end. I can see the big redhat icon in the middle of the screen and 100% loading status at the top-right corner. But can not move from this screen. No setting page comes as it mentioned in the exam preparation document.

Re: Booting the exam environment stuck after showing 100%

I saw another post and downloaded another iso image from https://static.redhat.com/downloads/training-certification/rhrexboot-2020-08.iso
Thanks to @Fran_Garcia for the solution. But since the answer and the image is little old can someone confirm me it is still OK to use this image for my remote exam?

Hi @dimikhan ,

That is an older version of the remote exam image and can still be used for your exam.

Re: Booting the exam environment stuck after showing 100%

Hello@vishals et all

Are you planning to fix this exam environment booting stuck issue in latest ISO as well?

I have faced the same issue in "Lenovo T470s" laptop and then I have to borrow a laptop for an exam.

Re: Booting the exam environment stuck after showing 100%

Hi @skamboj ,

The team has reported it to the devs but I do not have an update on a fix yet.
I believe this issue was only reported in the T470 models. Do you know of other devices (other than the Lenovo T470) which cause the same problem?

Curiously, this problem has only been reported in the newer version of the remote exam image running on Fedora 33. The older version of the remote exam image, which runs on Fedora 32 does not have this problem. So, it could very well need a change from the Fedora project for this issue to go away.
In any case, I'll try to follow up with the devs for any update.

Regards,

Re: Booting the exam environment stuck after showing 100%

I give up to use my mac book-air(2018).

It can not boot with old iso.

 

I could boot my old mac book-air(2011) with old iso.

 

I will use it...

Re: Booting the exam environment stuck after showing 100%

I am facing the same issue:

After booting from USB it say loaded 100% 

then slowly tries again from 0 to 100% and then just stucks nothing happens.

I am using MacBook Air (macOS Monterey 12.0.1, 8GB RAM, 1.6 GHz Dual Core Intel Core i5)

Now I am trying with rhrexboot-2020-08.iso hopefully it will work and remains valid for the exam, fingers crossed.

Re: Booting the exam environment stuck after showing 100%

Finally I was able to run & PASS the compatibility test for exam on  rhrexboot-2020-08.iso on my MacBook Air (macOS Monterey 12.0.1, 8GB RAM, 1.6 GHz Dual Core Intel Core i5).

Few things to note:

I had to use external keyboard, mouse and speakers as somehow MacBook keyboard mouse, keypad and speakers did not work at all. I had to buy USB-C hub to connect all (USB flash drive, Keyboard, mouse, Logitech C270 camera, Plantronics headset.)

I must say rhrexboot-2020-08.iso is also not straight forward. I had to boot multiple times to see "..." (three dots on blank screen which eventally loads exam in 2-3 mins).

I hope this rhrexboot-2020-08.iso remains valid for the exam too, I am planing to appear for exam in next ~20 days.

Also I wish Red Hat would take some action for the issues people are facing in the the latest iso (rhrexboot.iso).
