Elementary OS recommended system specifications for the best experience: Recent Intel i3 or comparable dual-core 64-bit processor 4 GB of system memory (RAM) Solid state drive (SSD) with 15 GB of free space Internet access 1024×768 display You could try, but in my opinion you should pick a lightweight GNU/Linux distributions(Xubuntu, Lubuntu etc.) can be ...

Use Gparted with a live USB to reformat the SSD and then try again? You will need to check which distros come with Gparted on the live USB.

elementary is tracking this here: https://github.com/elementary/triage/issues/74 And there's a workaround: Downloading an Ubuntu 20.04.2 iso and copying the EFI folder from it to the elementary media (overwriting the original EFI files) seems to work as a workaround. I will try this workaround myself, as I am also affected by this problem. UPDATE: A new ...

This is being tracked upstream here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/shim/+bug/1937115 It's affecting Dell users trying to install Linux from live images using a specific version of the shim/shim-signed packages (see the proposed bug fix at https://github.com/rhboot/shim/pull/393), and that includes elementary 6. We can only wait.

Yes. The elementary OS installation instructions are available here. I recommend using Balena Etcher to flash the ISO on to the USB. When you go to boot from the USB, you'll need to press and hold the left Option key after the startup chime. A menu will appear with attached disks to boot from. Select the USB drive to boot the elementary OS installer. The ...

Got my XPS 15(9500) with 1920x1080(GTX1650Ti/i7-10750H) yesterday. Disabled secureBoot and intelRaid from bootMenu and overwrote windows completely. Elementary(Hera) has been flawlessly installed and is working like charm, autodetecting anything (fingerPrint - i don't care ). Latest nvidiaDrivers provided by appCenter and also working including ...

The "point of failure" is likely the hardware itself, as the MacBook Pro you're using shipped in autumn 2006. Comparing the specifications of a fully loaded, top-of-the-line MacBook Pro for that year to the recommended hardware for Elementary OS we see this:   MacBook Pro (2,2) Recommended Notes CPU Intel Core2Duo T7600 @ 2.33GHz Recent Intel i3 ...

There are few things to know here. The default Windows EFI partition of 100MB is too small for Windows and Elementary - Elementary will not be able to install on it. You need to create a second EFI partition of 512MB, format it as FAT32 and with "boot,esp" flags, and then configure your BIOS to boot from the second EFI. This means you need to ...

There no verified mirrors for the ISO files, but you can download the image via the BitTorrent protocol using the Magnet link: Simply click on the “U”, and this will open the appropriate application, connect you to several peers with relatively good upload speeds. After downloading, be sure to verify your download. So long as everything is good, you should ...

Yes, you can take a currently-functional Windows installation and convert it to a VirtualBox VM (and probably other VMs) relatively painlessly ... but it'll be done initially via Windows then later on elementary OS (or any other OS, really). The tool you'll need is disk2vhd. Be sure to get it only from Microsoft as there are bad actors around who have their ...

Checking the "Enable EFI" under System / Motherboard resolved it for me. From the better boot experience I am going to be checking this box on all future Linux builds.

I hope the folks at Elementary get a new ISO out soon! Why they are so slow to respond on both Facebook and other forums is not good. They need to get a new ISO out ASAP. Imagine your band just released a new album with all kinds of promo and press releases only to find out that all the tracks are garbled when downloaded from iTunes or Amazon. See: https://...

As mentioned in my comment I had the same issue with August 10 release, but installation with the August 23 iso went without issues! Just redownload from the website should get you the newest iso.

I've tried it too and if I selected Czech language and US keyboard, i stalation aborted at the begining. If I selected US language and czech keyboard it has stucked at 70 percent. In complete english it worked well.

I tried doing the installation in English (US) and not adding swap. It fixed the issue. EDIT: The problem is the language, not the swap. I tried installing again in US English but with a swap partition and it worked fine. Instalation in Czech failed. I've reported this as a bug in the elementary installer.

SOLVED: One thing I noticed while going through this old system was that it only had 2GB of RAM. I happened to have some memory laying around that worked for this system and after upgrading it to only 4GB of RAM and booting it up the 550RX fired right up. It appears that this GPU needs more than 2GB of system memory to function.

SOLVED All I had to do was restart. And then hit F12 BEFORE the GRUB menu showed up, in order to get my bootable drive to show up.

Like say @KGII your have the option ERASE DISK when you have in the installation guide after little search with google
