i've been trying to install Linux mint 19 mate (32bit) on my ASUS T100TAM via USB Stick for 2 days now.
- WIN 8.1
- 32GB Harddrive
- 2GB RAM
But I've tried this:
Made a bootable USB with Etcher, Rufus Edit: by now also with USB Universal Installer (8GB FAT32)
Disabled Secure Booting options in BIOS,
Set Boot Option Priorities to USB Drive & Disabled Option#2 in BIOS
Restarted the System about a hundred times.
Whatever i do, it seems not possible to force the system to boot from the USB and install Mint, it just starts Win8.1.
I've installed Ubuntu a year ago with nearly no trouble instead of Win 10 on my Acer, but here i'm quite desparate.
Hope someone can help.
PS: I'm quite a novice to the topic of OS, so please be so kind and explain me things like you would do it for a child.
