Troubleshooting -->
  • Select "Install Fedora 40" and press the "[e]" key to edit the menu entry.

  • Make sure the installation device variable (coreos.inst.install_dev) is correct and append the ignition parameters (e.g.: coreos.inst.append=ignition.config.url= coreos.inst.append=rd.neednet=1) to the linux line if not present (e.g.:):

    ### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/10_linux ###
    menuentry 'Install Fedora 40' --class fedora --class gnu-linux --class gnu --class os {
    	linux  images/pxeboot/vmlinuz rd.neednet=1 coreos.inst.crypt_root=1 coreos.inst.isoroot=Fedora-40-IoT-x86_64 coreos.inst.install_dev=/dev/vda coreos.inst.image_file=/run/media/iso/image.raw.xz coreos.inst.insecure quiet coreos.inst.append=ignition.config.url= coreos.inst.append=rd.neednet=1
    	initrd images/pxeboot/initrd.img
  • Boot the menu entry by pressing "[Ctrl-x]" to boot and install the IoT device

Verifying the installation

Once the installation has finished and the device has rebooted you should be able to login with the user configured within the ignition file:

ssh core@$
