Unable to boot Fedora


I’ve been trying for the last few hours to boot Fedora 33 on my laptop, unfortunately unsuccessfully. So I’d like to ask for your advice.

After selecting “Start Fedora” in GRUB and waiting for 5 minitues Warnings appear:

  1. dracut-initqueue timeout - starting timeout scripts
  2. dracut-initqueue[610]: Warning: Cound not boot
  3. /dev/disk/by-lable/Fedora-WS-Live33-1-2 does not exist
  4. /dev/root does not exist

I’ve managed to copy the rdsosreport.txt and uploaded it here. (If you rather want to have the original file or have it uploaded elsewhere, please let it me know. This is the best I could think of…) https://share.mailbox.org/ajax/share/05aeed7d0780c348536b798780c343108f33a83cefe49bbe/1/8/MzQ/MzQvNTg

My goal is to get dual boot running, with Fedora 33 and Windows 10 (which I need for CNC operation at work…)

Here is what I’ve done so far:

  • creating a live-USB with Fedora 33 using Fedora Writer on Windows
  • shrinking Windows disk space for Fedora (100GB unallocated space)
  • diabled Fastboot in Windows Power Options
  • decrypted the SSD
  • swiched SATA Operation mode from RAID to AHCI in System Configuration
  • diabled secure boot in System Configuration
  • changed boot order to USB first in System Configuration
  • checking if a other laptop with Fedora installed can boot from the USB-stick (it did)

The laptop is a Dell XPS 7590 with an IntelCore i5-9300H with 8 GB RAM and 512 GB SSD.

Any help is much appreciated :slight_smile: unforunately I not anywhere close to know how to use linux properly, so please keep it simple :wink:

Your first step would be to start Fedora from the usb-stick (no need to change anything else than boot sequence on windows laptop), currently it sounds like your usb-stick is not working.
Did you follow instructions on: Creating and using a live installation image :: Fedora Docs ?
