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
Code:
ls /dev/disk/by-label/
UDISK
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.
Code:
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.
