Here is what worked for me, using Debian jessie (stable). I basically took the instructions from this wiki post, and stripped out all the steps about dual-booting with Windows, since those didn't apply to my case. In the BIOS, set "UEFI only" boot. Using Gparted, create a FAT32 partition at the beginning of the disk with the boot and esp flags. (The Debian ...

I actually figured out the solution to this weird problem and the solution is equally weird: I had to plug in the DVD drive in another SATA slot. I have two places on my motherboard with SATA slots: A group of two SATA slots and another group of 8 SATA slots and the DVD drive was plugged in on of the slots in the group of two. After plugging it into a slit ...

Had a similar problem on system with nvidia card. Try setting nomodeset option. After installation install nvidia drivers.

You could: start the computer with both disks attached, boot into (your currently only choice) Debian run update-grub It should detect Windows on the first Disk, and add an entry to the boot-loader choices. And you could then optionally install grub also to the other disk boot sector by running grub-install /dev/sdb sdb is what I assume to be the ...

It depends on which boot-loader was installed. If its a standard Debian install it should be GRUB2. Boot the computer with all disks containing bootable installations attached and powered. you need to open Root Terminal application to open a terminal as root. then enter this commands. apt-get update apt-get install os-prober if os-prober package is ...

You would need to configure the install media to grab files from multiple local sources. As far as I know this is not possible, or else somebody would have done something similar but for multiple CDs. Instead, all I find when looking at installing from a CD refer to downloading the extra packages from the internet. It seems impossible to utilize more than ...

Each side of the disk will act like a separate disk, so if the installer supports multiple disks it will work with a double-sided disk (assuming the contents of both sides are prepared appropriately). For example, the Debian installer supports multiple CDs or DVDs and would be usable with a double-sided DVD.

No, you cannot as the double sided media does not offer a single data space. You have to flip the medium and remount it to get the other side and thus cannot copy a 9GB install medium to such a disk.

You can point to a kickstart file in a number of ways, including http url — Install from an installation tree on a remote server via FTP, HTTP, or HTTPS. For example: url --url http://<server>/<dir> or: url --url ftp://<username>:<password>@<server>/<dir> Source: RedHat Kickstart Configuation documentation

I believe the Fn keys are mapped to X86... named keys. Therefore, I'm assuming you have to install the x-server first. As for the brightness issue, ArchWiki has some relevant information, among which is the possible systemd-backlight problem/workaround: Inverted Brightness (Intel i915 only) Symptoms: after installing xf86-video-intel ...

Actually, you need to download the USB ISO file. Else, you can burn your current DVD ISO on a DVD and proceed to install.

Linux does support wifi adapters. We can't foresee the future but most adapters should work fine. Why don't you install it and address specific issues as they arise, if they do.

There was no repo or url specified. The installation continued with the following snippet for the packages ################################## ##### 3. Package installation ################################## url --url="http://sunsite.rediris.es/mirror/CentOS/7/os/x86_64/" repo --name="CentOS" --baseurl="http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/os/x86_64/" repo ...

I can now happily confirm that accessing the built-in flash drive works without problems using kernel 4.6.0-rc7 and manually binding the device using: echo 106b 2003 > /sys/bus/pci/drivers/nvme/new_id I'll submit a patch which will make the manual binding superfluous. During testing I had one episode of spurious timeouts which I was never able to ...

Your screenshot shows the 93.60G Unallocated partition quite clearly so it is detecting it. Why this is not reflected in the upper portion of that installer window I can only speculate on. I would guess that is only a list of allocated partitions. Did you click on that partition in the screen you have pictured? Without downloading and checking the LM ...

@GAD3R as you can see in my first image, the legacy is "on" and secure is "disable". In the images you can't see, but I changed the " usb" as first. Still not working. I can go further of Linux Mint Logo. I want to replace the entire system, not double boot Thanks.

Download Kali 2016.1 Rolling Edition it supports UEFI and in Rufus choose the option in which MBR and UEFI are both defined.

You have a huge list Devansh. but here is what is understood. Which Linux Distro you want to install. You need at least 100 GB of partition per Linux Distro system its totally depends on your package selection. If you leave space unattended in the disk management then it can be detected by the Linux OS while installation. you don't need to create a file ...

To get the smallest possible system, follow the instructions you linked to, but specify --variant=minbase on the debootstrap command line. This will install only apt, essential packages and their dependencies. You will always end up with packages not flagged as "Essential": some of the dependencies of essential packages aren't themselves "Essential" (they ...
