I downloaded the fedora 22 iso, and used WindowsXP-Rufus to make a flash drive bootable and put the iso onto the flash drive. Unclear if relevant - I had to manually download ldlinux.bss and ldlinux.sys before rufus would work on this iso. Unclear if relevant - used 2 gb flash drive, with 1.4 gb iso, leaving 600mb free on flash drive.
Attempting to boot from flashdrive onto my newly built pc (16 gb memory, 64 bit mobo), I got the following messages:
Mounting Configuration File System
[ok] Mounted Config File System
[ok] Started Show Plymouth Boot Screen
[ok] Reached Target Paths
[ok] Reached Target Basic System
[187.669259] dracut - initqwue: Warning: Could not boot
[187.692088] dracut - initqwue: Warning: /dev/disk/by-label/Fedora-Live-WS-x86_64-21-5 does not exist
[187.692762] dracut - initqwue: Warning: /dev/mapper/live-rw does not exist
I verified that rufus did make the flash drive's volume label = Fedora-Live-WS-x86_64-21-5
Following the warning messages, the boot process suggested that I exit out of the "current shell", which I did. I (apparently) was then placed in terminal mode.
Request help, thanks.
