Description of problem:

First this problem happens with F25 and F26 Beta, same results.

I tried with the official Apple USB-C adapter and a Dell A200 as well, no change.

When the mac starts and I press the option key, I see:

    Fedora Live
    EFI Boot
    EFI Boot

Both "EFI Boot" and "Fedora Live" start the Fedora Live image. I get to the Fedora Live start menu, I choose "try Fedora", the USB stick blinks for few seconds, and finally, nothing happens. No more blink and blank screen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Burn a USB stick with F26 Beta
2. Try to boot a Macbook Pro 2016 (mine is 13,1) on this USB stick

Actual results:

Fedora Live doesn't start at all.

Expected results:

It should start.

Additional info:

AFAIK, the problem happens with Fedora, but some people reports Debian starts correctly. So seems to be really Fedora related.

Just tried with a 2 days ago Ubuntu 17.10 daily build, and it starts correctly. So this is a Fedora specific issue.

I'll post more elements as soon as I can, but feel free to give me some testing ideas.
