I have a Asus 1015E netbook. I have been able to use Debian and Ubuntu, with the only problem that I have to use EFI.

Now, I would like to try Trisquel, but I ran into problems. I tried both the mini and 1.6GB isos of Triskel 7.0, burnt into an USB. When I try to boot, after selecting the option "run trisquel without installing" and spending some time in a screen with a fading triskel symbol, the computer does not respond.

If I press ESC at the beginning of the boot, I can see many error messages like:

can't umount /casper-rw-backing: Device or resource busy

And other messages, but at some point everything stops and the screen goes black... Any idea of what could be happening?

How did you create the live USB system? Following https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/how-create-liveusb ? Did you choose to have some "permanent storage" (the "reserved extra space" mentioned in https://trisquel.info/files/USB_Install_02.png)?

I created the USB system using dd (as explained in https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/how-create-liveusb). No permanent storage option there as far as I can see...

I will start by saying that I have no idea of why it's not working :-D but I have an Asus 1015cx with Trisquel and it worked out of the box... the only difference I see is that I probably used just "sudo dd if=/path/to/image.iso of=/dev/sdX" instead of "sudo dd if=/path/to/image.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=8M" (or maybe bs=4096 or bs=512, I don't remember, not 8M for sure)... maybe you could give it a try...

Hé fabio,
* "bs=8M" tells dd to read/write in 8 megabyte chunks for better performance; (the default is 512 bytes, which will be much slower)
* The "sync" is to make sure that all the writes are flushed out before the command returns.
