i'm trying to install fedora workstation, but it hangs.

after doing the media check and pass it, it hangs on the fourth [ OK } line that says 'Reached Target Remote File Systems (Pre.). then it stops. i waited over 5 minutes and nothing happened.

this exact halt occurs on version 26 as well as 27.

if using nvidia graphics card, Hit E when the grub menu presents, on the linux command line add nomodeset=0 in front of the quiet command. Do Ctrl-X to load, get the low rez gui, and install the nvidia driver or try to configure nouveau to work properly, your choice.
