Getting the thing to boot in certain computers is
an absolute pain in the neck. Specifically,
those from Supermicro, but there are others.
I finally gave up and made a direct install stick.
That did not work with FC22 Xfce's spin either.
Wouldn't boot for its life.
So I switched to the (really weird) FC22 gnome spin
and that worked perfectly. I then group installed
Xfce and it has been fine since. It boots
everything that will boot a USB.
FC21's Xfce live did not have this problem, either
on Live USB or direct install.
Basically FC22 Xfce is only good for creating Live
Thats pretty weird to me. It works fine for me here in all my tests.
Additionally, the F22 Xfce spin is made with the exact same
livecd-tools, kernel, anaconda and packages that the workstation one is
made from. The only difference is the package set. Booting and such
should be the exact same on both.
Never had a problem boot any of the above off HP's
el-cheap-o computers, which puzzled me greatly.
A lot of the issues are that FC22 Live sets up
grub.cfg to device by its direct dev (/dev/sda)
instead of by its UUID. Gnome does UUID.
The sdx floats all over the place, depending
on what computer you install it into.
But switching to UUID only solved some issues.
Right now, it is not a big issue for me. I did
the direct install to an old fashioned partitions
and can use the stick as a flash drive as well
as a boot stick. I am tickled to death with it
and use it about three time a week on customer
sites. I have it cherried out to my needs.
ok, cool. If you are happy then great....
