ok firstly it should have worked with fedora media writer bcoz i had similar issues with my system and i resolved it by using fedora media writer. now do one thing try installing debian based os like ubuntu or debian or linux mint.....if it works then its should work with media writer else there some other issue with your system...

Yes, I tested ubuntu, live debian, linux lite, lubuntu, knoppix, Q4OS and only can booted lubuntu! All of others could not booting on my system. Only Lubuntu could boot normally. Are you use Fedora Media Writer in windows?

ok mbzadegan...

do one thing download fedora 28 iso image from fedora official site.Then download fedora media writer from fedora official site and extract the iso image with help of fedora media writer on ur usb drive to create bootable device......other extracters create fedora 28 into legacy mode but fedora media writer creates fedora into uefi that is the reason u r unable to install....

hope it helps...!!!

I downloaded and Installed Fedora Media Writer. Then I run and select my downloaded Fedora Live Cinnamon Image (from 3rd switch = Custom Image), It started image writing on my USB and still I hanged on that state! So I tested it on other Computer and see that it run without any Error. How can I get details about this booting Error step to resolving it?

Is it a Fedora UEFI BUG?

actually its not a bug but extracter creates legacy mode if u use other extracter other than fedora media writer
