    Flash stick live media not recognized in ASUS BIOS

    I'm having trouble creating a usable fedora live flashstick. The create process seems to go well but when booting from it on my ASUS desktop it fails with a bios message "warning: UEFI device shellx64.efi not found.

    The flashstick looks correctly written, df shows it as having an iso9660 file system of size 1885468 for an iso that claimed to be 1.8 GB.

    The only thing I can see is it looks like the bios is looking for shellx64 and the flashstick has EFI/BOOT/BOOT64.EFI.

    The full flashstick tree is shown below.

    If the bios is looking for an exact match what can I do? I can't modify the readonly file system.
