I’m trying to use an old Lenovo G40-30 that I’ve upgraded with a 500gb Crucial ssd and another 2gb of ram.
Whenever I tried to boot a live image from my USB drive my laptop would shut off in the middle of boot up. Since I never got the live image to work I tried the netinstall and got it to install successfully. However, when I restart I get the same issue with the installed version as I do with the live images. I haven’t been able to find a similar issue documented anywhere and I’m still a newbie, so I’ve got no idea where to go from here.
*The USB drive does work. I just installed Ubuntu on another machine yesterday to use for OctoPrint.
- I’ve tried the Fedora Media Writer and Rufus
- I’ve tried with and without secure boot
- Fast boot is turned off
- I re-flashed my BIOS but I was already using the latest version so it didn’t do anything
- The version I installed with the net installer shows the Fedora logo and a loading icon before the laptop shuts off
