You evidently made a mistake (or several) during the installation.  You need to discover what BEFORE taking that exam.  Won't impress a future employer or client of your talents if you can't even install Red Hat.

FWIW, I've never experienced your problem, and I've been using Fedora since Core 3.  Now, switching to Debian for the longer support time.  I've done dozens of Fedora/CentOS installations on various machines--desktops & notebooks--over the years with few problems.  And computers are not even my profession.

I consider Debian to have one of the best auto-installers around.
