After edit grub startup screen ctrl-x does not start/boot fedora. Known procedure is: start machine, press Shift to open grub, E for edit, ctrl-x for boot. But ctrl-x just gives an x in edit screen. No reboot. What do I miss?

Is your <ctrl> key working properly? Just booted a F25 in KVM and did not have this issue.

This is a known bug on some systems in Fedora 24. (Possibly, EFI systems?) In most cases, F10 should work (or on some systems, Fn-F10).

This may be fixed in Fedora 25; I'm not sure.
