    Exclamation Usb tumbleweed does not go past plymouth screen, any fix?

    I can't get to the GUI after waiting longer than 10 minutes. Anyone else have this issue?

    You need to be a lot more specific than this.

    When you boot off the device, do you get to a menu? Or does it not get anywhere.

    If you get to that menu, do you then choose an item, such as Installation, and then ... what happens?

    Do you see the bars, or do you see just an image (what image?), or ... ?

    I get past grub. Then it loads the kernel and stars the Plymouth boot screen with the 3 animated dots. If I press Excape it says the following after awhile: Invalid PCI ROM header signature: expecting 0xaa55, got 0xffff and never gets any further.

    I am getting this:

    It appears that message is not likely the cause of the problem:

    There are a lot of hits in a web search and they seem to all say it is harmless, something to do with ATI, AMD, Radeon???

    Warning: dracut-initqueue timeout - starting timeout scripts, is the issue, some of the commands are timing out. How do I go about saving the file to the usb disk so that I can upload it. I don't have network support yet for my wifi adapter.

    There are various options you can try in the installer. For example, try Safe Settings.

    Still doesn't work on safe settings... Kernel issue?

    ... sorry, in a lot of pain tonight, having difficulty thinking.

    You did run a checksum on your download before you copied it to USB, correct?

    I think you probably know there is no point running the check media option on the USB itself, which will fail because it is on a USB instead of DVD.
