Boot after installation

#1 Postby Kikujadek » Fri Dec 22, 2017 8:25 pm

Hi
I just have installed MX-17 on Acer Aspire ES1-111-C4GS and I can't boot the system. I have UEFI with secure boot enabled and it says no bootable device. When I switch to legacy it boots but freezes after grub, just black screen.
I have tried to use "select an uefi file as trusted for executing" but there is no hdd in there.
I had Linux Lite and Sparky Linux on this netbook which booted without any problem.
Any solutions?
Thanks

Can you give us the output the MX Quick System Info so we can see what you have?

Isn't this one of those troublesome BayTrail machines that has a 32-bit instead of a 64-bit UEFI?

How do I check It? It has 64-bit cpu but where to check UEFI?
Disabling secure boot didn't help "no bootable device" as before. :(

when booting UEFI, it should be installed to the esp partition of the device. assuming you have a 64bit UEFI that is.
