Appreciate any help!
I recall reading re Samsung drives and ahci not playing nice together…try disabling ahci.
Changed SATA Mode from AHCI to IDE. Same response from default boot: ROOT MOUNT INVALID
More info: Installing from USB stick and selecting option 3 (Boot From USB Stick) from the menu causes a hang condition - see attachment.
Are you using a usb2 or 3 port? Try 2.
Using usb2 port. Thanks irj972 !!
