During my attempts to install Fedora as virtual machine we got following error:
dracut-initqueue: mount: /dev/sr1 is write-protected, mounting read-only dracut-initqueue: warning: Could not boot Entering emergency mode. Exit the shell to continue Type "journalctl" to view systm logs. dracut:/#
The solution is pretty simple. The problem is inside VMWare automatical installer and VMWare’s autoinst.iso image which is automatically connected to virtual machine.
To resolve this issue, stop your virtual machine, open Edit virtual machine settings and remove first CD drive with mounted autoinst.iso.
When you remove this iso from you VM, run it again and everything will work as expected.
