Hi, I'm currently running Fedora 17 x86 and I created a LiveUSB with Fedora 18 x86 on it. I tested it and it works on my laptop, but when I tried running it on my desktop it didn't work. I've been able to usb-boot in the past so I'm not sure what has gone wrong. I checked the BIOS, but not sure what to tweak.

After post the system just hangs -- there aren't any error messages. If I remove the USB it boots just fine off my hard drive. Thanks for any advice.

Follow standard troubleshooting procedures related to LiveUSB creation:

  • Check Fedora image file (iso); compare checksum values to rule out a bad image as the root cause of the failure
  • Try using a different method to create the LiveUSB system; e.g. if you used unetbootin, try using fedora-live-usb-creator or try using the dd method (if it's a DVD ISO image)
  • Try creating the LiveUSB on a different system, preferably one with similar hardware specs (e.g. AM motherboard, etc.)

For further information and details, please see the Fedora Wiki

He already tried with a different computer and it works. So it is a problem with the motherboard.

@hello He tried using the LiveUSB on a different PC, not using a different PC to create the LiveUSB; read it more carefully

This is a standard list of troubleshooting tips as a general procedure is more appropriate without exact details about what is causing the issue. If these steps are followed, with the same result, certain items can be ruled out to deduce the possible cause of the problem. I'm not sure why I lost karma for providing this answer, its recommendation is at zero.

I have no idea why you lost karma.. :( I gave some more :) Sorry for the misread. Anyway, how would the LiveUSB change if created on a different computer? (just curious)
