Press any key to continue...

Although my plans are to use dnf system-upgrade, this looks like a kernel issue to me. It is unclear to me whether the issue lies with the Fedora Live image, or if there's something on this laptops that just blows the kernel from high orbit, whether it'll boot from the USB stick or its existing hard drive.

That's a grub error.

That would have larger repercussions. If it was just a kernel issue I could still boot an earlier F39 kernel. But there's only one grub. It's all, or nothing.

I expect it's related to how booting is setup from an iso file. It's very unlikely to be an issue with a real drive.

It's something with that particular, older hardware, not the iso file.

An old memory resurfaced: I dimly recalled having problems with using USB storage devices on the two USB 3.0 ports on that laptop. This was back in the days with iffy hardware support on Linux, so it was second nature for me to try the third, USB 2.0 port on back of the laptop, and they worked.

So I tried the Live CD on the USB 2.0 port, and it booted.

So, it's ten years later and Linux still has occasional hardware issues, it seems…
