Hi, Thank you for writing back. I have not tried a different USB stick, as I don't have any others large enough for the image, however I have downloaded the ISO / checked all signatures & digests on two separate occasions. They checked out as good both times. I also burned the ISO to 2 different DVDs. I have only been using the on-board video, and don't have any separate PCI-E cards for the system. I only have the mouse & keyboard plugged in as USB when I am booting from the DVD. I will check on the GPU BIOS options again, but I couldn't really find much to change... As far as updating the BIOS, I went to the Gigabyte site and it looks like there's only 3 releases - the first release, and two beta releases, so I think I am good there. I am downloading Fedora now, but it looks like they're up to version 25. I'll let you know if that boots up and installs. I am trying to figure out how to boot into legacy mode, and will try that as well, and I didn't see much in the way of USB settings - I tinkered with a few of them and it didn't seem to help any. I'll keep trying... -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
