Re: Lenovo S205 won't boot any Live USB Fedora distro

I was having this same exact problem on a Lenovo x120e Thinkpad, Fedora liveUSB created with unetbootin. Solved it by:

1. Find your USB disk label. When in the debug shell, run
ls /dev/disk/by-label/
My label was UDISK. The fedora installer by default expects the label to be Fedora-15-x86_64-Live-Desktop (or similar)
2. Reboot and edit the GRUB boot command.
hit ENTER to view GRUB menu.
hit 'e' to edit commands before booting.
hit 'e' to edit top entry.
change LABEL=Fedora-15-x86_64-Live-Desktop to LABEL=<yourUSBlabel>
(also remove 'quiet rhgb' for verbosity)
hit ENTER to accept and 'b' to boot.
that should do it.
