I burned a dvd and I tried the install on my old Acer (32g) and it loaded the first screen.But I can't get it that far on my newer Acer. It is a Legacy.From what I read I should be downloading the Legacy or the UEFI version.Ok, I'm 76 and probably missing it but I can't find a download that states Legacy or UEFI?Help.
I've been running Lite for lot's of years and this is the first time I'm lost.And I did move the USB/CDRom to the top position.Thanks for the help.blessings

What type/model of Acer - 32g?   
Legacy BIOS or UEFI is fine (either) but it has to be 64bit and not 32bit...

LL4.8 UEFI 64 bit ASUS E402W - AMD E2 (Quad) 1.5Ghz  - 4GB - AMD Mullins Radeon R2
LL5.6 UEFI 64 bit Test UEFI Kangaroo (Mobile Desktop) - Atom X5-Z8500 1.44Ghz - 2GB - Intel HD Graphics
LL4.8 64 bit HP 6005- AMD Phenom II X2 - 8GB - AMD/ATI RS880 (HD4200)
LL3.8 32 bit Dell Inspiron Mini - Atom N270 1.6Ghz - 1GB - Intel Mobile 945GSE Express  -- Shelved
BACK LL5.6 64 bit Dell Optiplex 160 (Thin) - Atom 230 1.6Ghz - 4GB-SiS 771/671 PCIE VGA - Print Server

Neither UEFI or Legacy show up int the BIOS.

The newer one is an Aspire 15, 64bit. Mfg 2018.In the BIOS of the newer one, is LEGACY

I followed the old, "if at first you don't succeed" and found something that worked.  I had originally moved USB CDROM to the top and it didn't load.  So I then moved ATAPI CDROM: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GUE1N to the top and it loaded.  I'm not geek enuf to know what happened but it did work.  I got a chance to look at 5.6 and it looks good.  I'll try actually loading it at a later date.   I feel awkward that I couldn't explain the problem in such a way that gave others a lead but......  :023:

keep at it.....amigo
