Just as a thought here...Did you make sure in the bios that "secure boot" and "fast boot" were both disabled before trying to install?...This can be a "show stopper"...DAMIEN

I use mkusb for that with the dus interface.

FYI, if someone is using Rufus, they're on a Windows machine. AFAIK, Rufus is only available for Windows.

Can it make larger than a 4GB casper partition, which pendrivelinux programs seem limited to?

Not the reason for the "FYI." In fact, Rufus doesn't do persistence at all. Point is, if someone is using Rufus, they're not able to use mkUSB, which is a Linux app. As you may recall, there's a workaround installing mkUSB in a live session, but that's gonna be beyond the reach of most newbies.
