LiveCD dies 1 minute after boot

Hello,

I have a Dell XPS 15 9560. I have Fedora 27 installed, and I would like to try Solus.

  • SecureBoot: Disabled
  • using UEFI to boot
  • AHCI: on

The LiveCD boots but then about 30 seconds later, the entire OS freezes.

Even if I do DO NOTHING, it freezes up.

I even just moved the mouse back and forth aimlessly, and it froze.

I can’t really install this if it’s going to freeze up 30 seconds in…

Please advise.

Sounds like the iso didn’t burn properly, I would try to create a new live version but do it using the dd command from the terminal and not some software for creating live versions.
