Can not install on a pure EFI system. USB boots intermittently, tried multiple USB sticks. When in the livedemo gparted keeps saying overlapping partitions. Same disk installs OpenSuse, debian and Mint no problems. I am done
Is this a problem?
it is, but its with the user's system, not our setup. fehlix has a post up with a repair procedure.
lenovo ThinkPad T530 - MX-17
lenovo s21e & 100s - antiX-17, MX17(live-usb)
FYI: mx "test" repo is not the same thing as debian testing repo.

Yeah, the review above killed our average by giving us a "1". The next review refutes the complaint with
Overlapping partitions was not reported, in any case a system with that error is not in a safe condition as it has danger of data corruption in the overlapping area. Needs rectification before an installation. If an Installation fails due that error be thankful, it can save a painful experience at a later date.
How do you get overlapping partitions, anyway?
