Hi, I'm new to Fedora from Ubuntu and have created a start up disk with Unetbootin. When I get to the Plymouth screen the install fails, dropping to emergency mode and giving me errors about /dev/uuid-#### does not exist /dev/live-rw does not exist. What am I doing wrong here? The .iso is Fedora 18 Beta. I'll also add that the emergency terminal is a pain due to having a dvorak keyboard and the commandline defaulting to qwerty.

I've noticed that unetbootin often has reports like this until well after release. There are suggested, supported, and tested methods of creating a USB image for Fedora. For information, visit

I am also getting same error. I used fedora's own installer to create live-usb. Please help me if you have found a way to resolve this
