I am having a problem getting the Fedora 21 boot media to boot into the install. It comes up to the boot screen and I select Install Fedora 21 and it sits there for a second and then reboots. I clicked tab and I took out the quiet option from the boot line and then I can see that it loads vmlinuz and then loads the initramfs and then immediately reboots at that point. I have tried the Server DVD, the Net install CD-ROM, and I've even put the cdrom iso on a USB stick but I get the same error every time. I have installed Fedora 20 and CentOS 7 on this system without any issues. I installed a minimal install of Fedora 20 and then upgraded to Fedora 21 using Fedup, so I am up and running now, but I was wondering if anyone had seen a similar issue or know of anyway that I can troubleshoot this issue.

How did you write the image to the USB stick?

I used dd to write the image to the stick.
