While installing the fedora kde 22 on my laptop. I got the following problem. the error is given below :

dracut-initqueue[426]: Warning: Could not boot. dracut-initqueue[426]: Warning /dev/disk/by-label/Fedora-Live-KDE-x86_64-22-3 does not exist Starting Dracut Emergency Shell Warning: /dev/disk/by-label/Fedora-Live-KDE-x86_64-22-3 does not exist

Generating "/run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt"

Entering emergency mode. Exit the shell to continue. Type "journalctl" to view system logs. You might want to save "/run/initramfs/rdsosreport.txt" to a USB stick or /boot after mounting them and attach it to a bug report.


Can somone please help me.

I had a very similar problem on an Asus n551 (newer, UEFI), while same installer worked on an Asus n55s (older).

Creating the USB stick with dd instead of creating it with unetbootin fixed the problem. Installation worked.

After disabling UEFI mode or change it into Legacy mode from bios It runs perfectly.

How to disable UEFI mode as I see the only access way into booting?
