  1. yum -y install livecd-tools
  2. Then create liveusb using following command:
    livecd-iso-to-disk --format --reset-mbr --efi <iso-file> <device-name>
  3. After this run "Fedora live usb creator" and it should show the USB device. Now use "Fedora live usb creator" to create proper bootable device with "dd" destructive overwrite option.
