    2. Don't update anything post-installation and add any repos
    3. Go to terminal and type sudo do-release-upgrade -d

    I also tried it...

    [SOLVED] Re: Ubuntu 16.10 final beta.

    So disappointed. For some reason the Final Beta still doesn't boot from USB with EFI boot on Lenovo Thinkpad. Is there a way of still installing it in UEFI mode?
