I am attempting to install Leeenux on my eeepc 4g. I went for this distro as the ssd is only 4Gb.

Try a normal install setup.

Here I find the ISO to USB sometimes is off. If I see this I fetch my USB DVDRW drive and try the CD install.

Then test your bootable USB on other machines.

If it works there but not on this machine, you know to try other distros and or report the bug to the maintainer of the distro.

Given the low cost of such USB CD drives, and that they are so useful I would not want to be without one.

Hangs on other machine

I have now tried it on another machine, and it hangs at the same point, so that is a useful bit of diagnostic information.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
