Machine: Ryzen 7 1700 + RX 550 + 16 GB RAM

I used the following command to install/burn Fedora 27 workstation iso image to a USB stick, with 4 GB overlayfs and 1 GB home.img:


sudo livecd-iso-to-disk --reset-mbr --overlayfs --overlay-size-mb 4000 --home-size-mb 1000 --unencrypted-home #Fedora_image /dev/sdb1

The LiveUSB has worked great.

But when I tried to merge the overlayfs with rootfs.img using the two scripts described in the tutorial:

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/LiveOS_image/overlay

Both attempts failed.
