Hello, I am trying to install fedora 26. I downloaded the x86_64 image and put it in a LiveISB using fedora media writer. When I reboot my laptop, I choose fedora for boot, the boot starts and unroll various informations, and then stops at [OK] Started user Manager for UID 1000. This is the second time it prints this message. the first is after "created slice User Slice of liveuser, and the second is Started Session 1 of user liveuser.

And then nothing happens for several minutes. I waited long and switched off. I restarted in win 10 as usual and nothing seems to have happened.

I use Fedora at work, which i the reason i tried to install it in dual boot with win 10. I have previously successfully installed Ubunto on a Sony Vaio (8 years ago) and previous linux distros on other desktop and 1 asus laptop. I am not expert, but just following the instructions always helped until now. This time around seems different. Could anyone out there help me please?

I tried Ubunto version 16.04 and 17 using usb and they both froze at boot, without any output at all.

I would be particularly interested in having the whole log-file of a successful install, such that I know which steps are missing from my case. This way I could (perhaps) tell where it went wrong? Also, how could I have access to the whole stuff that is printed on screen during the boot?

Thanks in advance

Hi, try one of updated Fedora ISOs (those have a fix for Skylake GPU bug with similar symptoms) and if it doesn't help, test other methods to create a bootable USB stick (I remember Fedora Media Writer had some issues on win 10). BIOS update might also help.

If none of above help, on Fedora boot screen use Troubleshooting -> Basic graphics mode.

Press Esc while booting (after you choose to start booting Live system on Fedora boot screen) to see more details about what's happening.

If you choose to use Nvidia binary driver (you'll have to, unless you don't have Nvidia GPU or have it disabled in BIOS), you'll have to disable Secure Boot.
