thumb drive linux (fedora) booting


I have placed fedora on a thumb drive using liveUSB creator. I am attempting to boot up from that thumb drive from a Mac OS. When I attempt to boot from USB everything goes well until I get to the "Starting Network Manager" and then it freezes..Can someone help me trouble shoot here. What I really want to do is replace the Mac OS with Fedora completely, but I was just testing fedora on the Mac OS from the thumb drive first....

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

try different disto, or just try different fedora version, you can also try to make bootable usb drive with unetbootin, that usually serves me well.

More info needed. "goes well" meaning what ?. Do you get to the GUI ?. Do you just get a message(s) on a black screen ?.

Try this - when you get the boot menu, highlight the "run Fedora" option and hit the <E> key to edit it. Go down and erase the "quiet rhbg" options (so you can see all the messages) and hit <F10> to kick off the boot.
Let us know how far it get, and any (additional) messages.

Which version of Fedora? I assume a live version and maybe x64.

Usually I create full installs to a usb. The live are ok for some things and should normally work for testing.

Might be a bad copy or download.

Might have been able to use dd to copy image to usb. Be very careful with that.
