Title: Cannot get beyond Welcome screen, "invalid argument"
Post by: Doug Robinson on April 25, 2019, 11:46:06 AM
New to Linux, got the bootable USB, starts up and shows welcome screen (4.4 64 bit).  Shows Automatic boot in 10 seconds, counts down to 1, then flashes a message on the screen too fast to read but I can make out something about Invalid Argument, and then returns to Automatic boot in 10 seconds.   Trying safe mode, I can see casper vmlinuz failed, invalid argument.  Same message for Check Install media and Install Now.  What am I doing wrong?

We don't know anything about your hardware. Please update your Forum Profile to reflect what hardware you are running. Then we have a place to start with Support. Thanks.

Hi Jerry!

It is a Toshiba NB100 netbook, Intel Atom CPU N270, 1 gig ram, Intel 945 chipset video, currently running Windows XP. 

I looked up the N270 processor and looks like it is 32 bit.  Hmmm... 64 bit OS, 32 bit processor... I may have answered my own question.

Ran in to a similar problem different OS on a USB flash drive had to download bakenaEtcher to load the OS on to the USB flash drive . It is the only way that i could get an OS to work on any flash drive. Etcher is a free download extract it on to your desktop to format the OS on the  USB flash drive. I fourn this out thru trial and error, a little enervation too.Hope this helps.
