OK, I'm back... but the Wizard is probably asleep down under. So y'all know... I'm on U.S. Central Time, like Chicago.From this website : https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/microcode#TOC-Intel-processors
I need newer microcode to match my bios update.
Intel Ver: July 07, 2017
MSI Bios: Nov, 08, 2017
The website above says that "Check the date of the microcode package: it needs to be newer than your BIOS / UEFI! "
Please try UEFI only, after unplugging the TB drive. Hey, it's a crapshoot... I know. But something is not going right here, and honestly, UEFI is the preferred method now. It should not refuse to boot the DVD, and it should not refuse to install, because Ubuntu can do this.legacy+ufei
two availabel options
Hey, I will test this process on a DVD (with Linux Mint 18.2 MATE). Will let you know...If you still have the USB stick available, there is a method I outlined here https://www.linux.org/threads/hash-checking-rare-tips.13544/#post-45991 whereby you can check from within the stick itself, that the shasums match. I do not know whether that would work with an optical disk, and I don't have the DVDs to test it on, but I have CDs I could throw a Puppy or other small Linux on and check, while you proceed under Stan's tutelage?
Not that I ever doubted you, Wizard! Worked flawlessly in my DVD test. It took a bit of time to complete on the slower DVD (/dev/sr0 on mine) but it is a good method for Linux users to verify the DVD was burned with a good download. If I get ambitious, another good test would be on Bash shell in Windows 10.... but I'll hold off on that for awhile!Hey, I will test this process on a DVD (with Linux Mint 18.2 MATE).
