Notes and questions on a new Asus installation.
I just purchased an Asus laptop, an F512J. I intended to install LMDE4 immediately and made a USB image. Info told me to hold the F2 key as the unit was powered up to access the BIOS. This worked as expected. I disabled Secure Boot, set boot order and attempted to boot up. Hang. I pressed the power button and the boot process jumped just a bit. Everything hung again. I pressed the power button again and nothing. I held it and forced a shutdown. Tried booting again. Same. For a test I made a LM Cinnamon 20 USB and attempted another boot. The boot completed but just into the install it stopped too, but with a message about RST needing to be disabled. I got into the BIOS but there was no option to disable the RST. I did some checking into RST then got into the SATA settings and changed that to AHCI. LMDE4 still wouldn’t boot, but LM 20 was OK again and I completed the installation without a hitch. I’m in the process of getting it tuned to my specs now and not having any further issues.
I had checked the .iso files and I had tried the USBs on my ancient Toshiba to make sure they were good images and they both booted with no troubles on the Toshiba.
Any ideas on getting LMDE to boot and install? LM C 20 is fine, but I’d much rather have LMDE for my full time runner. I’ve been using it for the last year and I’ve grown attached to it.
