Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Basic_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.
Warning.png
Data loss
Any data on the USB stick used for this test is likely to be destroyed. Please do not use a stick whose contents you need to keep.

Setup

  1. 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).
  2. Install package if you are on Fedora, or use the installer from the if you are on Windows.

How to test

Fedora

  1. Launch and select the version of Fedora you want your flash drive to have
  2. Let it download and see if the tool successfully wipes the content before writing the downloaded image.
  3. Boot the system from the USB stick and verify
  • UEFI boot
  • BIOS boot
  1. Start the installer
  2. Proceed with the installation
  3. Verify the installation is fully operational

Windows

  1. Extract the files and run the liveusb-creator.exe with admin privileges
  2. Select your favorite version of Fedora with the architecture and wait for the download to get downloaded
  3. Check if it wipes the flash drive before writing the image
  4. Boot the system from the USB stick
  • UEFI
  • BIOS
  1. Start the installer
  2. Proceed and after installation verify the functionality of the same

Expected Results

  1. The USB will be wiped before being written with the image.
  2. The stick boots without error.
    • If you choose to perform media consistency verification before the actual boot, the check will be skipped and not performed at all, the medium will boot right away. That's expected, media verification works only for dd-style conversion.
  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.
