Major drawback!
Just realized there are no language layouts! My main distro needs them when I write to my friend's connections.

This deals more with installation, but I would assume if you have an option for boot priority (F12 or F8) you'll be able to get a USB stick running.

UEFI boot works fine on my system. Additionally to the advice in the wiki, I had to change one setting in the boot setup menu to "Other OS" from "Windows".
For some reason GRUB did not install properly and defaulted to KXStudio GRUB, from which I could boot MX-16. That was easily fixed by reinstalling GRUB from the booted MX.
Main points are -
- GPT partition scheme unless you want to use Legacy (CSM) boot.
- Disable Secure Boot
- Disable Fast Boot
- Check for Windows-centric settings.

Thanks guys. My pc is set up for dual booting with linux.  I am trying to run MX-16 as a LIVE USB on it which is not working. Your information has I think helped. The version of MX-16 I have is a 32Bit as that is all the Dell can run and so that is what I have on the usb. Seems that 32Bit versions need LEGACY bios and my Skylake pc is set up as UEFI.
So I will have a fiddle and see if i can get this to work.

Just set up MX-16 in a Virtual Machine as a guest on Windows 10. It looks terrific. All the Guest Additions were set up so I got a full screen right out of the box.

Figured out how to get my usb-c showing up in the boot menu for my Skylake mobo. Wrote the MX-16 to the usb and when I try to use it it stalls and shows a warning,

"isolinux.bin missing or corrupt"

tried writing the image to the stick twice and the .iso passes its MD5 check.

What am I missing folks. Apart from several grey cells. :hmm:

Yea, it sounds like it may have not been written correctly :thumbsup:

Well guys I used the "dd" command, same one I use for all similar tasks.

I'll give it another whirl. I only want to see what MX-16 runs like from a usb-c/3 usb stick on a modern Skylake set up just out of interest. :breakfast:

I think I will try another download of the 64 bit to see if that cures the problem.
