I was just wondering what site that would be the best help for solving an issue with my laptop. Is there a place that actually has helpful people that know what they're talking about when it comes to dealing with booting and installing an OS? I know it sounds trivial, and it SHOULD be. With this laptop, however, it has been anything but trivial. If, per chance, you or someone you know would be able to help me solve it here vs. somewhere else, feel free to help. So, on to the issue: I cannot get my BIOS to detect an UEFI bootable flash drive (and CD/DVD's are out of the question, because it does not have a CD-ROM drive), even though it works perfectly fine on all the other computers I've tried it on. You might be thinking that it's a problem with Legacy mode [not] being enabled... However, no matter what I do, any time I change the boot mode to anything other than the default (which is UEFI), the computer won't display anything. Literally. It will lock up when trying to boot, and when I hit "Del" to go back into the BIOS, it still doesn't display anything, even though I know the BIOS is running (because I can hit F9 to reset to defaults, and hit enter to accept and restart). I have gotten only ONE thing to attempt to boot, and that's a Linux distribution. However, it only goes so far into the boot process (whether it's live from the USB or from an install) before it locks up. It may have something to do with the fact that my graphics card is the new nVidia 1070 series, because the point at which it locks up is (from what I've read) when it switches to an nVidia specific driver, called nouveaufb, from the simple driver. All of that aside, is there someone who can at least point me in the right direction? I trust the regular people here at GBATemp more than any other site (considering that I don't have accounts on hardly any other generalized forums).
