Unable to get my Fedora 18 Live USB to boot
Linux newbie here. Currently I've been messing with Ubuntu on an old Dell D620 I picked up for free and fixed. However, I wanted to try something new, so I downloaded a Fedora 18 Live ISO to a USB drive to try out.
However, when I go to boot from the USB drive, I get the first screen that gives me an option to either start Fedora 18 or Troubleshoot.
Every time I select start the screen just goes black, and nothing happens. I've let it sit for 15 minutes and nothing happens whatsoever.
So any ideas what's going on here? It recognizes the OS and let's me select it, but then nothing happens.

Hello and thanks for the welcome! I actually did use the LiveUSB Creator to make my bootable USB Drive. Machine Specs are as follows:
Dell Latitude D620:
1.66 GHz Intel Core Duo
4GB DDR2 667 MHz RAM
Quadro NVS 110M Graphics Card
Currently I have Ubuntu 12.04 installed on it.

Fedora LiveUSB should work fine on those specs. Legacy USB Support creates problems in some cases. Toggle Legacy USB Support option in BIOS and check if it works.
