hey thanks for the answer.

i try it with another stick and with the Fedora Media Writer. Same Error.I try to start an Ubuntu and this seems to work.

The reason why i would like to change is that fedora maybe correctly detect the NVIDIA Quadro P1000. I Would like to passtrough to a Windows VM.

just find out this is maybe caused by an SELinux Problem. Is there a chance to deactivate SELinux in the boot Menu of the live CD

Add enforcing=0 for booting in permissive mode, selinux=0 for disabling selinux completely (you might need to relabel your file system later on).
