Error making F15 live USB - stops at GRUB

Hi,

I'm using the x64 F15 KDE spin on a Lenovo X120e

I downloaded the fedora usb tool, installed the iso image to 4GB usb stick.

At boot, I get the grub screen and a prompt : 'grub>'. I don't know what to do at this point or if this is expected or if it should keep booting automatically?

When I tried this with the F14 live cd, I couldn't even get the usb to do anything. I don't know if this is a usb drive error, a X120e error, or something else, but I can't wait to ditch Win7 and put linux on this thing!!

Cheers,

kilolima

Make ext2 filesystem on your usb-flash. And it will be work.

I think this is a known bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=644862

FAT16 should be ok too.

Re: Error making F15 live USB - stops at GRUB

After formatting as ext2 using a kubuntu live cd on another computer, the fedora usb creation program refused to recognize the ext2 usb key and proceed any further. So ext2 does not work as a solution, and fat16 does not work either.

Any other suggestions?
