I've been running Fedora Jam 36 for the past couple of years and
decided it was time for a real system upgrade. I decided my best bet
for making a jump from 36 to 39 would be to just reinstall from the
I downloaded the installer ISO but was unable to validate the download
because the links to the checksum files give a 404 error. After imaging
my flash drive and attempting to boot in UEFI mode, I see a brief error
screen indicating that start_image() returned Unsupported, then my
existing installation of Fedora starts to load.
If I try booting in legacy BIOS mode, no bootable systems are detected
at all. I did try flashing the image again in case there was an error
in the first attempt, and I also downloaded a second copy and confirmed
they have identical SHA 512 checksums.
I can't find an archive of Fedora Jam 38 to attempt either (I'm not
sure whether one even exists), and the #fedora-audio IRC channel
appears to no longer exist.
Is anybody even still working on Fedora Jam? Does this installer image
work for anybody?
