I’m not sure where to post this, hoping this is the place :()
I know nothing about hardware. . . . .
I just had to return a new ACER, booting from USB was disabled/not allowed. Now I’m looking at 2 Dell Inspirons 3891 that may have to go back too, they only boot in UEFI, and - no options for CD or USB boot. They do show boot options for IPv4 & IPv6 - What?
I’ve been lucky up to now installing Linux on old laptops 2, old Dell desktops 4. I want some new ones - to run Proxmox (influenced by @Jay) and play around on. The other for a simple home PC, or home-lab (must stop listening to @Jay LOL)
LEGACY Booting is no longer supported past SKYLAKE.
32 BIT OS and Drivers are no longer supported by anyone.
64 BIT windows 10 or Linux in UEFI mode is the only thing supported going forward.
This means ancient Linux that uses GRUB/MSDOS MBR booting is also not supported.
CSM with MBR legacy booting is gone.
Will there be a new way to install Linux on these new systems?
And is there some hardware middle ground $price, for Linux systems?
