Okay, I can't post links: check marcindulak's comment above for the link to the dupe if you want, for some reason.

Firstly, I apologize for the duplicate question https://ask.fedoraproject.org/question/37748/usb-devices-not-recognized-strange-side-effects/ (here).

But the problem has been solved with lucky voodoo magic: A complete reinstall (for a fourth time) fixed the problem; same edition, same MD5, etc.

Whatever the issue was, it's gone now. Because the checksum is and was the same across all repeated downloads, this must have been either a problem with my hardware (maybe the USB install drive), or a software bug. What precisely the problem was, escapes me, but it is no longer relevant.

As such, if anyone has the same problem, I suggest you simply re-download the disk image, verify it, and burn the drive again.

Thanks.

2013-12-26 17:42:29 -0500 asked a question dracut Warning: Cannot finalize remaining file systems and devices, giving up.

Hi.

I've just installed Fedora 20 onto my HP Pavilion G6 laptop, and everything was working well, for a little while.

Since I use the machine essentially as a second desktop, It's got a full compliment of accessories to go with it - a mouse, a keyboard, a hard drive, all of which are USB devices.

Upon initial install, all of the devices were working as expected.

When I restarted the computer, it hung on the final line of output "Rebooting.", which looks something like this:

Rebooting.

This is transcribed as accurately as possible - I took (blurry) pictures.

Similarly, powering off the computer, with both GUI and CLI, provided extremely similar errors. When I am forced to kill power to turn off my computer, I boot without issue (or so I believe) and none of the USB devices work. If I have booted with a device plugged in, powering off gives me error output to reflect this - similar to what is posted above.

This happens every time the computer is booted/rebooted/powered-down with a USB peripheral - there is nothing in dmesg to indicate a USB is detected, yet the dracut warnings signal the device IDs that are assigned to the ports when everything is working correctly (Before ... (more)
