Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Fedora_22_Alpha_Release_Criteria#initialization_requirements release criterion. If you are doing release validation testing, a failure of this test case may be a breach of that release criterion. If so, please file a bug and nominate it as blocking the appropriate milestone, using the blocker bug nomination page.

Description

This test verifies that a Fedora live image can be booted and installed from a USB stick created by Fedora LiveUSB creator.

Important.png
UEFI supported since 3.11.8
LiveUSB creator only supports the creation of UEFI-bootable sticks since version 3.11.8. If you want to use this test case and do a native UEFI boot of the stick, please make sure to use liveusb-creator 3.11.8 or higher.

Setup

  1. Download the live image you wish to test.
  2. Ensure you have a USB stick that is larger than the live image whose contents you can afford to lose (the contents of the stick will be destroyed as a part of the test).
  3. Install Package-x-generic-16.pngliveusb-creator if you are on Fedora, or use the installer from the project homepage if you are on Windows.

How to test

  1. Write the live image to the USB stick using liveusb-creator.
If resulting USB fails to boot: use terminal command "liveusb-creator --reset-mbr"
  1. Boot the system from the USB stick.
  2. Start the installer
  3. Proceed with the installation.

Expected Results

  1. The ISO image is written to the USB stick without error.
  2. The Live image boots without error.
  3. The installer starts without error.
  4. The installation finishes successfully.
  5. The new system initiates boot properly. Note that problems after boot that do not seem to be related to writing the image to a USB stick are likely out of the scope of this test case, though they may count as failures of one of the other installation validation test cases.
