I am having quite a bit of a trouble with booting the Live USB of KDE Neon User edition, that I've created. I will try to provide you with as much info as I can, by starting that the distro is based on the latest LTS release of ubuntu (18.04).
I have created the live usb by using dd, just like I did for all other distributions for the past few years, like this:
This is the output of tree -L 1 containing the files:
Under Boot I have the following configurations, which in my understanding should help to boot the distro in either Legacy or UEFI mode.
I have 2 laptops, both Acer, one running in Legacy mode and one running in UEFI only. I have managed to install KDE Neon on the old one, using Legacy mode with no problems whatsoever.
On the second one, I am not able to even boot into the Live version of the distro, let alone install it. The moment I select from the boot menu to start up the Live USB, I get a blank screen and that's it. No output /quiet mode I guess/, no blinking cursor, nothing.
I have tried to disable Secure Boot option from the bios - same result. Also there is no option available under the Boot section to select either Legacy or UEFI mode.
I have read quite a lot of topics here and other sources as to how to solve this one, but I always end up with the blank screen, so any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
I will list some of the most basic info about my problematic ultrabook here, in case it's actually relevant.
I should also point out that I managed to successfully boot and install two distributions on that machine:
Lastly, if it matters, I am not interested in having dual boot or anything of the sort, I simply want to know why I am having such troubles with one distribution, while with others it works as expected.
I am sorry if this is not to appropriate category to post this topic. If needed, feel free to move it to more appropriate one.
