View Full Version : [lubuntu] Lubuntu 16.10 32 bit on UEFI 32 Bit system Acer Switch 10

I tried to install Lubuntu 16.10 on Acer Switch 10. The system uses Uefi 32 bit system.
I creaed boot key with Rufus (FAT 32). i Choose Lubuntu 32 bit iso.
I copied bootia32.efi file on efi directory. I moved boot directory under efi directory.
The result is that the kwy is recognised but the installation stopped (grub 2 prompt).
What can I try now?
Thank you

Welcome. Wouldn't bother with 16.10. It reaches end-of-life in a week or two at which time you will need to upgrade to a supported release.

Would advise Lubuntu 16.04 LTS, a long-term support release with support until 2019. Try that and post again with full details of the system you are trying to install on, whether you are dual-booting or installing Ubuntu only, etc. and why you are using Rufus if you have issues. Good luck. ;)

(PS: You chose 32bit Lubuntu so presume you are using a 32bit system? If not, go 64bit.)
