liveusb-creator has been replaced by Fedora Media Writer. See QA:Testcase_USB_fmw


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

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.
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.


  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.
  2. Boot the system from the USB stick.
  3. Start the installer
  4. Proceed with the installation.

Expected Results

  1. The live image is written to the USB stick without error.
  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.
