Description of problem:

When booting off a flash drive created with the Fedora Media Writer on Lenovo ThinkPad T530, I receive:

Unable to fix SELinux security context of /run/rootfs base: Permission Denied

The system then ceases to boot any further. I have tried multiple times, with the Workstation release and the XFCE spin with the same results.

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


How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot Fedora 28 installer off of a flash drive on a T530 system. 
2.Select the option to start the installation from the text menu 

Actual results:

Error appears

Expected results:

Anaconda should load up so a user can proceed with the install process

Additional info:

I will attach a screenshot of the error and preceding messages.

This may be buggy EFI/hardware, closing this out

I have a similar error on a brand new laptop. Did you solve this problems somehow?
