Hey friend, not to murder my jokes, but I understand you’re on the Fedora 34 (featuring GNOME 40). I don’t think anyone here is ragging on you for your Fedora related issues.
I’m not sure about the issues you’re running into because when I install Fedora 34 all I had to do was plug in my USB stick and boot from it and then install per usual. I was not able to replicate your issue on my personal computer. (This does not mean the issue is not happening.)
Perhaps this was not the thread to make cheap-*** jokes.
If it helps, secure boot is pretty irrelevant unless you’re using full disk encryption with one or more of your OSs. If an OS can meddle with your other OSs directly it won’t matter if their boot process maintains integrity.
That’s the way Ubuntu do it but it’s not a requirement. Fedora use root and home, I suggest that because IIRC Fedora 34 only enables zstd compression if you named Btrfs subvolumes root and home. Sure it’s possible to name it @root and then add compress=zstd:1 in fstab afterwards tho
Managed somehow to get Sandisk on usb to load.
Don’t think it was a Rufus issue.
Was unable to do that last part “create Btrfs Subvolume… named home mountpoint /home”
So i tried with “root” one only.
It wanted password at boot to do some managing stuff - didn’t work.
Said enter ctrl+D to continue as alternative, and that didn’t work to get into installed system either.
So have removed Fedora.
I guess the password thing you mentioned is for secure boot? I never enabled secure boot and never have a reason to.
And for the Btrfs, most probably you created a Btrfs Partition instead of Btrfs Volume. To create a Btrfs Volume you have to select it from the top drop-down, not the one selecting ext4 and stuff. (But as you’re just still learning this, you can just ignore some one these, most importantly is still to install the OS successfully!)
And BTW there’s a thing called Fedora Media Writer to use instead of Rufus and stuff.
