After installing to the hard drive, Fedora does not start

I have had help with getting the installation to work and now that I have completed the installation to the hard drive, I removed the USB stick and tried to start the system from the hard drive.
All I get is a flashing cursor blinking at the top left corner of the screen.
There is no information displayed and at no point can I stop the process to change the parameters.
Can anyone advise how to solve this?

No boot menu? No BOOT POST? Nothing?
What’s your system spec please?

I’m afraid there is no boot menu.
I can start the live system, of course, from the USB stick, but when I remove it there is nothing on the display upon startup.

System is Acer Travelmate B117, with these specs:

Processor: Intel Pentium N3710

Graphics adapter: Intel HD Graphics 405 (Braswell), core: 260-700 MHz, dual-channel,

Memory: 4096 MB , DDR3-1600
Monitor: 11.6 inch 16:9, 1366 x 768 pixel 135 PPI, Chi Mei N116BGE-EA2, TN LED
Storage: 64 GB SSD

I had to reinstall my old OS because I need the laptop for work, but if there is anything I can do to get Fedora to work on it, I will.



You had Windows-10 on it before?
You could try disabling Fastboot and UEFI then install with legacy boot
This looks like a BIOS issue. Make sure you are running the right architecture too. I am not sure your processor can handle 64-bit but I may be wrong. Crosscheck that.


I looked in the BIOS and verified that I am already using Legacy boot mode (rather then UEFI). There is no option for enabling or disabling fast boot. The system still does not boot, so I think I’ll stick with my previous OS.

Thanks for your help!
