Having created a USB
[[email protected] ~]# dd if=/home/Downloads/Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-36_Beta-1.4.iso of=/dev/sdb1 status=progress

Restart of the PC just refreshes the screen. ISO wouldn't load after bootup.

How to get around this?

Welcome to the forums
What is the make and model number of your box? What is the main OS.?

Welcome to the forum!

My firsty question is -- did you let the process finish, it giving numbers for " records in" and "records out?"
My second question is -- was /dev/sdb unmounted before beginning the process?

One does not use the partition number, just the device
dd if=/home/Downloads/Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-36_Beta-1.4.iso of=/dev/sdb1 status=progress
=>
Code:
dd if=/home/Downloads/Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-36_Beta-1.4.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4096 conv=sync

Do it again, adding progress if desired, remembering the whole device will be wiped.

As we have as yet not had a reply from the op.
@matvrix
IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS as your primary operating system, the first thing to do,is..
Open bios
go to boot options and make sure it is set for USB first boot,
then DISABLE windows quick start, [this is usually found in either power management or battery management]
re-boot with your USB in place]
