create an installation -stick with - Linux :: how to do ?


Hello dear Linux-community,


i have a new notebook - Medion Akoya E4254 (MD62100)

Quote:
Prozessor Intel Pentium Silver N5000
Display 14 Zoll (1920 x 1080 Pixel)
32,9 x 22,0 x 2,0 Zentimeter
Memory (Größe, Typ, Modell) 58 GB, eMMC, Hynix HCG8e
(USB) 1 x USB 3.0 Typ A, 1 x USB 3.0 Typ C, 1 x USB 2.0
more plugs (weitere) 1 x Headset, 1 x HDMI WLAN-ac (2,4 und 5 GHz), Bluetooth 5.0
see: http://www.computerbild.de/artikel/c...-21762503.html
...note the original system on the notebook is ms Win 10

i want to replace the windows with a linux: So i created some installation-media:
i tried opensuse leap 15 but without success:

What did i try:
- UNetbootin (Linux)
- Rufus (Linux)

the issue: The notebook did not recognize the USB-Medium - nor the DVD.

That is very strange:

BTW: The OpenSUSE-Version should be signed digital by Microsoft - since CSM matters.
Sure thing: The stick should have GPT-partitions (minimum 5 GB) - starting (booting) as a Live-Version btw: OpenSuse Leap is told to support UEFI und Secure Boot since version 14 -> UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) | Reference | openSUSE Leap 15

Why did i get stuck - why am i am not able to get a installation-media on USB-Stick nor a DVD. Well am trying to install via live media (as opposed to the full installation ISO)? I have no idea what might be wrong with the USB media i have prepared.
well - i have to make sure to clear up if i have had a copy the ISO as to a binary (bit for bit) copy

see the install documentation:


Well - i got stuck i need to have to create a new installation media - in order to instll.

BTW; does it make sene to use GParted to clean the Notebook ?

You should read your thread on the openSUSE forums:
https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...-certain-point

...where you were told that you obviously didn't create the install device correctly. There are complete instructions on the openSUSE site on how to create a bootable USB install media, and on how to create a DVD. Since it's not booting, you didn't follow them correctly. Chances are your laptop is trying to use secure boot, and you didn't follow the instructions for UEFI/secure-boot. Either do that, or turn it off in BIOS.

Since you post links to what you SHOULD do, is there any real point in posting a thread, ASKING about what you should do?? Follow the instructions correctly. This is something you've been told many, MANY times over the years here.

As you should very well know (since you've installed openSUSE before), you can format the drive in the installer. But you said before that you were 'new' in creating partitions....even though you've been doing it and using gparted for years:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ux-4175577653/

So either way you proceed, you've not only done it before, but know full well what you should/need to do. So again...is there a point to this thread? I think this post would be good for you to read:

Turn off secure boot and UEFI boot. Make sure the USB device is an available boot device. After you press the on button, press F12 for the boot menu. Or maybe F10.
