Bored on a Sunday afternoon, decided to take the plunge and at least try out EOS. Downloaded ISO from Sourceforge (torrent option didn’t work), used dd to create a bootable USB with it, and plugged it into my UEFI laptop. Pressed key for boot options menu, USB doesn’t show up. Only option is Linpus Lite, which takes me into the existing Anarchy Linux install I have on there.
Plugged USB back into my desktop, rebooted, USB was there as an option in boot menu, selected. But the GRUB config I’m familiar with (Deepin and Windows drives for selection) popped up. I turned off fast boot option in BIOS to see if that was the problem, still persisted beyond that change.
