I downloaded the Fedora Workstation 35 iso and the Fedora media creation tool. I am using Fedora Workstation 35.1.2
After verifying and booting into the USB, when I click on the "Install to Hard Drive" icon, the mouse cursor spins for a while, goes back to normal and nothing happens. I have tried this using Rufus and a different ISO with the same result.
There are no logs that I can find
$ cat /tmp/anaconda.log $
And when launching Anaconda from the terminal it appears to hang forever
$ sudo anaconda anaconda 35.22.2-3.rc35 for anaconda bluesky (pre-release) started. # other text
EDIT: I found out that's not how you launch the installer, however
liveinst hangs silently.
My specs are as follows and I am launching the USB via UEFI mode. Any ideas
|Motherboard||Gigabyte X570 AORUS PRO WIFI AM4|
|Storage||nVME SSD via M.2 unknown brand (Toshiba I think)|
I have since tried a different a few things with no success:
Reset BIOS settings to factory
Disabled secure boot
Tried a different USB stick
Tried Rufus and Etcher
Tried "safe graphics mode"
nomodeset=0in the launch options (I think that's the same as safe graphics mode?)
I installed Debian successfully but had broken graphics. I had to run
apt install firmware-amd-graphicsto get graphics working but all seemed well from there.
Manjaro loaded into the live distro the first time but when I attempted to install it hung on "78% configuring hardware". I rebooted and I was unable to load into the live distro again - getting stuck at the bootloader waterfall.
After reading this post I thought maybe I messed up the partition table on the hard drive and it's somehow screwing with all the distros (nvme SSD connected to an M.2 slot.)
So I took the hard drive out and launched into Fedora with no HDD in.
liveinst still failed to launch
