I'm trying to write Fedora ISO to flash memory card using both Fedora Media Writer and Rufus but during booting up the computer I got errors like shown in the following screen shot:

image description

I have run the memory test for two passes and there is no any errors found. My computer is Toshiba Satellite L850 running Windows10 and I run the memory card from USB 3G modem that includes a memory card slot.

Additionally, sometimes the error messages is running infinitely on the screen quickly. Also, I have checked the downloaded ISO file integrity.

You should try these if you can:

  • writing the image to a different medium and try booting from that. (is it the image or the card?)
  • using something other than the usb 3G modem to boot off the memory card. (is it the modem?)
  • try writing the iso using dd. (is it either of the media writing tools you are using?)


dd if=/path/to/iso of=/device/name/of/media/card bs=2M conv=notrunc

NOTE: dd is a destructive command and can potentially cause catastrophic data loss. be sure to point the of= part at your memory card and not your primary boot drive!!!

I could not able to use dd like the way that you regarded because I'm already on Windows. However, I will try to use the image on a friend's computer, then I will purchase new USB flash memory and trying using it.

Well, I have used new USB flash memory stick and it works fine.
