I'm a fairly new linux user and am usually an advocate for solving ones owns problems although for this one I truly baffled. I'm sure the solution is fairly obvious and I'm just being too oblivious to it so I appreciate you putting up with me. I recently purchased an Acer aspire m5 laptop and have been trying to successfully boot from a live usb drive with a copy of btr5 r3 kde 32 bit. I've also tried it with the 64 bit but got the same error. I'm able to load the linux boot menu but none of the Casper files can successfully load. As of now I've tried running it in legacy and uefi; same results. I've tried both ahci and raid; neither work and the men test included in bt won't even run it. Any thoughts anyone? Acer aspire m5 Intel core i7 4500u 1.8 ghz 8g ram 1tb I also used lili live usb creator to burn an iso to a sandisk cruzer. Moreover I used window diskpart to remove any resonance of past bits. Diskpart Select disk 1 Clean Create partition primary Select partition 1 Format fs=fat32 quick Assign Exit Then I ran lili usb creator although I guess I could try this from a linux based system instead I windows 8. I should also mention I have an old asus net book with an intel atom processor(32 bit) and it succefully ran both versions. Although I still don't know how it took the 64 bit I'm assuming it was just the intuition of the creators.
