I followed the steps here:
Got a USB set up as an install drive for my Lenovo box running Windows.
Booted up and PureOS pops up with the options to install or test PureOS so I choose that (first option), others are recovery, etc.
So the next window has the usual installation steps, choose your language, choose your keyboard layout, then that was it…the desktop is up and running, I’m all set to go.
I start playing around with it, of course the wifi doesn’t work due to proprietary firmware so I get to work on that. Start working to install the debian version of the wifi driver and as things are loading my screen freezes.
Simple enough, now I have an idea what to run when I boot back up so I pull the USB stick and boot up…back into Windows…??? huh?
So I put the USB back in…it boots back up in the install for PureOS. Same thing, choose language/keyboard and back to the desktop. All files I had worked on gone, back to square one.
What’s going on? How do I actually install PureOS on the laptop? Other than following the exact instructions of downloading Etcher selecting the PureOS ISO, clicking Flash, then booting from that USB?
