    The DVD got to 95% & failed. As promised I'm trying your suggestion. It could be the ISO is corrupt. The ISO file size is 3.81 Gb which should be correct. Not sure how to validate ISOs. Hope WiNToBootic works.

    I use this, but I don`t do UEFI, always Legacy.
    I did see an option for UEFI or Legacy. Rufus just mentioned UEFI.

    Nope. ISO must be corrupt. Will download again.

    When you burn the ISO to DVD, do it at the slowest speed (x6 or x8) to avoid errors.

    Tried DVD again & this time it completed the burn. Upon install it would not intall to USB 500Gb NTFS HDD so I allocated 50Gb on another drive. Trying again.

    I'm in! Now on to finding my hardware. Somehow the install bypassed my GTX 560 Ti video card & selected the on motherboard GPU. All part of the fun, I guess.

    We're making progress! There was a system update that installed a graphic port update on my Gigabyte MB. This allow the nVidia driver to install. But, there is something weird going on. I do have dual monitors & with Windows 7 I installed software to have panoramic photos across both. I download some panoramics from Windows but they are different on each screen instead of one all the way across. How do you fix that?

    Still making progress! Personalize/DesktopBackground/Picture position:SPAN fixed the display issue.

    If anyone cares,
    Apache OpenOffice 4.1.1 works without issue.
