need advice. Problem installing F25 on an Sandisk Ultra USB 3.0 65GB stick in UEFI mode.
Works for a 32GB Sandisk Ultra, but not for the 65GB stick.
PC is an Acer Laptop, 2 years old, Win 8.1.
Tried now netinstall with the 65GB stick for 2 times instead of Workstation Live. In the
first trial the installation stopped at file 1114 of 1413, in the second trial it stopped
at 1089 of 1413. Is it normal, that the connection breaks down sometimes, or is this more
my connection (My internet provuder is a cable TV company), normally I don't see line
interruptions. As a further trial I will try to clone my working F25 installation from the
32GB stick to the 65GB stick with Clonezilla, but so far I think I don't use
Clonezilla correctly. Did anyone successfully Clone Fedora (F25) with Clonezilla, or
another clone program? Reason I get now a 1 TB used internal sata disk, which I want to
use as an external drive (USB 2.0 adapter), but previously I have tried an external pata
disk (some hundred MB) and got the same error as I get so far with the 65GB USB flash
medium in EFI. Legacy is ok.

tested now, the same error occurs for F22 to F25> Installation in legacy mode on 32Gb

problems like a 2xplaying speed in car receivers. Try to check all packages in chroot

this is not UEFI problem._______________________________________________test mailing list
