Netbooks / Re: Switch to Linux Lite from Windows 10

It looks as though I'll have to buy another USB and try again one last time.  Thank you for your help. Wish me luck!

Netbooks / Re: Switch to Linux Lite from Windows 10

Hi, thanks for responding. You are right - why did I download Zorin?  I was wandering around the internet trying to find the best solution, but must have got confused somewhere along the way. I did then find a Linux Lite manual https://www.linuxliteos.com/manual/install.html which told me I had to format my USB to FAT 32 - but now since neither my laptop nor my netbook can see the USB, I can't do that. I did see that it was already formatted to FAT (no FAT 32 option) before it died, however. This has happened to two USB drives that I tried yesterday.

Unfortunately I don't have access to a Linux computer at all.

Netbooks / Switch to Linux Lite from Windows 10

Hi. I want to move from Windows 10 to Linux Lite on my Acer Spin111-31 and have tried creating a boot USB using https://zorinos.com/help/upgrade-zorin-os/ and Etcher to create the boot drive. HOWEVER although I have changed the boot order to HDD as per the instructions, and the download seemed to happen okay, the netbook seems not to be able to find it and it boots in Windows. When I checked what was on the USB there were two .efi files. Now, however, neither my netbook nor my Acer Swift can even see the USB. Please help - how can I restore my USB, and how can I get Windows 10 off the netbook, where it is now too large to work, and Linux Lite onto it?
