  • Linux Lite: 6.0 64bit

  • CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-4790

  • MEMORY: 16Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: Intel® HD Graphics 4600 + NVidia GK107 (GeForce GT630 OEM)

  • Kernel: 5.x
I am trying to install the latest version of Linux Lite. I used BalenaEtcher to burn the ISO on a USB. I was able to boot the USB and begin the install, but it hangs on "updates and other software" after I uncheck all boxes and hit "next".

I tried loading the live version off the usb and removed all partition on the hard drive.

Im not sure if I'm missing a step.

Hi! :)

I presume that your laptop has an UEFI firmware. If this is the case, then maybe you downloaded the wrong ISO version.
The Mac, provides UEFI boot and if you burned the backwards compatibility ISO, then it will hang, since it was designed for BIOS firmware.
Another approach, is to check if the UEFI menu screen, has something like "Legacy UEFI", or "Compatibility Mode".
If it does, then make it active and restart the installation process.
If it still fails, rewrite the media with the appropriate ISO.
As far as I remember, the default download image is for UEFI machines.
Another issue, might be "Secure boot: ON". Disable the Secure Boot, if this is the case.
Tell us if it worked! ;)

Best regards! :)

Before running installer make the following:
Open terminal.
Code: [Select]
# sudo su -# blkid Check the name it will give you for your cdrom device. For example "Linux Lite 6.0 - Release amd64"

Code: [Select]
# add-crdom add --cdrom /cdrom -rAs a name add name from the step above.

Code: [Select]
# dfCheck which device is mounted as /cdrom. For example /dev/sdb1

Then run installer.


P.S.
If you'll check
Code: [Select]
# ps -ef --forest | lessYou'll find, that you're stuck on "apt-get install" step.
And while trying to run it manually, you'll get "please insert  the disk labeled <bla-bla> in the drive /media/cdrom/ and press [Enter]"
It's stuck on step

Code: [Select]
# mount /dev/<device from the step above> /media/cdrom

Guys, can't you fix it?
