I find that a LG WH12S39 Blu-ray RW drive won't start Fedora Core 17 from the LliveCD. It will boot to the point that the screen with the "Start Fedora" option appears. If that option is selected the the screen goes blank. The LED on the drive blinks but nothing happens. If the option to test the media is selected, the same thing happens. The option to test the memory works.
A simple work around was to attach a CD-RW drive in place of the Blu-ray drive. It started Fedora from the LiveCD (FC 17 64 Xfce spin). However, I'm curious if there is some simple fix that will make the Blu-ray drive work as a boot device.
