I recently got this Intel model, looking a very capable as a HTPC, and positive reviews, including mentions of working with Libreelec (development version). Fitted out with 8GB of Crucial DDR4 2400MHz RAM and a Samsung EVO850 SSD.
Unfortunately it won't run the Libreelec installation media, hanging at:
Wait for installer to start or press <TAB> for more options (live, run)
I can use TAB, but upon any selection it hangs, CTL+ALT+DEL does not work, requiring a hard reset.
I have tried 2 versions of Libreelec 8.90 (008 and 009) and also the current stable 8.2.5. Same results.
I have also tried a couple of other Linux versions which all work OK. Linux Mint current, and Unbunu 18.04 and 18.10.
BIOS is current, allow unsigned media is allowed, I can't see any other BIOS options that may affect it.
I'd much prefer to run Libreelec than setup and maintain my own Linux flavour.
Any hints or suggestions would be appreciated.
