Fedora Live USB Freezes whenever I do anything


Description of Freezing:

Whenever I click enter to choose a boot option [freezes]
Whenever I wait for it to boot once it gets to 1 [freezes]
Whenever I click tab [freezes]

Please help, I have been working on being able to use fedora for days now.
Thanks Again!

ok
try this
edit your syslinux.cfg

set it to boot with no menu first entry

so set it like this

Quote:
default linux0
timeout 0
it was like this

Quote:
default vesamenu.c32
timeout 10
it might be the vesamenu.c32 doing it
try that as above

Warning: Cannot find root file system

Create symlink /dev/root and the exit this shell to continue the boot sequence

Bash: No job control in this shell

Bash#

That's the error I got.
