This test verifies that a Fedora live image can be booted and installed from a USB stick created by Fedora LiveUSB creator.
- Download the live image you wish to test.
- 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).
if you are on Fedora, or use the installer from the project homepage if you are on Windows.
How to test
- Write the live image to the USB stick using
- If resulting USB fails to boot: use terminal command "liveusb-creator --reset-mbr"
- A short guide how to use this tool is available at How to create and use Live USB#Graphical Method - Windows or Fedora. You can also run the tool with
- Boot the system from the USB stick.
- Start the installer
- Proceed with the installation.
- The live image is written to the USB stick without error.
- 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.
- The installer starts without error.
- The installation finishes successfully.
- 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.
