Usualy I don't have any problems booting up a Windows 10 iso. It's something I've done 20 times now because I can't seem to stop switching operating systems from linux to windows. It's a once every month or two thing. This time around I decided to try Fedora. I've installed rufus to create a bootable USB, however it just boots into a black screen with a blinking cursor; Indefinitely. I think, haven't tested that theory.  Help? :X

The first thing I'd do is to download a fresh copy of the ISO file, and then create a bootable USB from that.


It is not unheard of for an ISO to have corruption of some kind.  If you don't think that's the case then get a new USB thumb drive and use Rufus to create bootable media on it with the ISO you have.

Testing another download now. When I try downloading via Firefox I keep having to restart the download. Not sure if that would mess with the integrity, but I'm downloading via torrent to go around that. Should work.  Thanks for the quick reply.  Love your signature by the way!
