Oops, a lot of posts, so I can understand things getting a bit mixed up. I'm using the Final release, not the April snapshot, which I just read a moment ago has a little glitch to do with grub?fehlix wrote:Fine!

navigate into your folder with the latest MX iso and run and compare the isoIf you are on Mint's MATE you can run Mint's USB-image writer to make the dd-imaged USB stick!
Code: Select all
md5sum MX-17.1_April_x64.iso c2ef3d943898b4ebbd28f40a2eae14ee MX-17.1_April_x64.iso
Md5sum checks out, and, yes, using the USB image writer to make the stick. Have done it on 2 different USB's and downloads, but the main USB referenced here and that I've just run tests on is the HyperX Savage 64 GB USB 3.1/3.0 Flash Drive.
Grrrr, lol, this 'thing' is winning at the moment ... I can't imagine what it can be now; my last Mint Mate install was done cleanly and via UEFI. I don't choose the 'clean entire drive' option on install, as it seems it would take a very long time, especially on a 1tb drive, but may need to consider doing that.
Maybe inxi -Fxz will give some clues.
