View Full Version : fedora 26 not detected

23rd November 2017, 01:10 PM

I want to install fedora 26 on my aspire acer but the installation disk never boots. It runs (the led blinks) and then boot the OS.
Is there anything to do else that I miss ?

You most likely just haven't adjusted the boot order. Press F12 at boot (normally) to get to the boot menu- then select the USB. I would also make sure it's in a USB2 port as USB3 is still finicky in my experience with whether it boots from it or not.

I would also research and make sure you understand dual booting, etc. if that's what you plan on doing.

Actually no. I even set the hard disk (with the running OS) boot last. I even tried the boot menu : nothing works : the dvd won't boot.
I am trying the USB boot now with a mediawriter made USB key. I need to backup first. Will see..

Ok : still don't know what happened with the dvd but usb works : allelujah !
