My desktop with i686 CPU is currently running macOS Mavericks and I'm trying to install Fedora 26 i386 via DVD (Fedora-Workstation-Live-i386-26-1.5.iso from a DVD-RW). Unfortunately, when it boots the DVD and I select "Start Fedora-Workstation-Live 26" it returns me this error a couple of seconds later:

dracut-pre-udev[358]: rpcbind: /run/rpcbind/rpcbind.lock: No such file or directory
dracut-pre-udev[358]: rpc.idmapd: conf_reinit: open ("(null)", 0_RDONLY) failed
dracut-pre-udev[358]: rpc.idmapd: conf_reinit: open ("(null)", 0_RDONLY) failed

Then it starts returning line after line of blk_update_request and Buffer I/O error on dev sr8.

After a few minutes, it does actually produce an error report: /run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt but I haven't succeeded in moving the file to a USB drive. When I run $ ls dev, here's what I get:

Subdirectories of /dev/

When I plug my USB drive in, the shell returns:

sd 11:0:0:0: [sdg] No Caching mode page found
sd 11:0:0:0: [sdg] Assuming drive cache: write through

I thought this meant my USB drive was at /dev/sdg/, but after entering $ cd /dev/sdg/ it returned that it didn't exist.

I can't use the USB drive to install Fedora since computer can't boot from it. It detects the USB drive at the boot screen but it completely ignores it after that. In fact, when booting from the HDD, it treats it as a standard removable drive with nothing to boot from.

Most peculiarly, I have an old CD with Ubuntu 12.04 i686 and I booted from that, it worked perfectly fine!

I previously thought that there was an issue with the optical drive in my laptop, where I was burning the ISO images to the DVD. So I used ImgBurn to find the error, and sure enough there was a power calibration area error but after a few re-tries, it successfully verified the DVD. When I booted the desktop with the DVD again, the error stil occured. I tried using a different distribution: Arch Linux, using arch-anywhere-2.2.8-i686.iso and the shell returned similar results (blk_update_request and Buffer I/O error) but without the aforementioned error.
