SOLVED Etcher issue re bootable USB new 64GB USB now 3.84MB

Thanks all for your replys. ZCOT thanks for your response. I tried to boot from the stick again and this time, after a little while, Linux automatically booted from the USB and I am writing this response via the Linux OS. The mouse however did not show on screen so it was an automatic load of the fi...

Re: Etcher issue re bootable USB new 64GB USB now 3.84MB

Thanks kadaitcha and JerryF for your responses. Please note I have less skill at doing the things you suggest than you think! Jerry could you add a little more to how to do as you suggest in Windows 10 as I can't remember how to access the correct screen to do this or what it is called. Your descrip...

Re: Verifying ISO images?

Moem,

Thanks for the response. I have just posted the issue in the installation listing.

I am currently assuming my 64GB still exist on the USB and that the missing storage & bootable issue can be resolved.

Thanks

SOLVED Etcher issue re bootable USB new 64GB USB now 3.84MB

I am soon to take the leap into building my own PC as this current one has already had a couple of hardware failures, (which is why it currently has Windows 10), and so have just successfully downloaded Mint 20 including checked & verified in anticipation of my new build. I have tried to create ...

Re: Verifying ISO images?

PBear Thanks for your reply and apologies for my VERY tardy response. When you just use a PC rather than getting into the weeds regularly it all gets lost and so thanks for pointing out my error yet again. At least I am consistent!

Re: Malware or possible hardware issue?

Pjotr,

You were correct.

The primary boot device had changed from the SSD to the DVD player - How this has happened is however a mystery as it certainly wasn't me.

Thanks

Re: Malware or possible hardware issue?

Pjotr, Thanks for the link re the advise on the ESET product. When I had a Windows computer this was the best commercial product available but from the information I can see it is a vulnerability and will remove it.
