Hello, I have a 2008 Dell Core2 Quad with 4GB of RAM running Win 8. I booted from the Blag 140k 64 bit cd, I got to the first options screen and chose boot. Then it goes to a multicolored noise screen where the mouse is a box and I can do nothing and the PC doesn't process anything nor sprin the CD.

What can I do o install Blag on this PC? With Trisquel the same thing happened.

UEFI with secure boot?
If yes, you have to go to the uefi at boot and deactivate secureboot, I think. But never run such new box, for now.

Hi rjltrevisan ;-)

Dr. Richard Stallman: It’s a disaster. Well, except that it’s not secure boot that’s a disaster, it’s restricted boot. Those are not the same. When it’s front of the control of the user, secure boot is a security feature. It allows the user to control what programs can run on a machine and thus prevent — you might say — unexpected malware from running. We have to distinguish the unexpected malware such as viruses from the expected malware such as Windows or Mac OS or Flash Player and so on, which are also malware; they have features that hurt the user but users know what they are installing. In any case, what secure boot does is that it causes the machine to only work with (?) programs that are signed with a certain key, your keys. And as long as the user controls which keys they are, then it’s a security feature. However, it can be chained into a set of digital handcuffs when the user doesn’t control the keys. And this [is] happening.

Microsoft demands that ARM computers sold for Windows 8 be set up so that the user cannot change the keys; in other words, turn it into restricted boot. Now, this is not a security feature. This is abuse of the users. I think it ought to be illegal.

this may help:

Do try out Blag 14k & Blag16 before as well

Blag16 Iso:

l advise you for security reasons it's best to install Fedora19/20 then liberate it,
you will have the latest up to date system.
we are all running Freed-ora at the moment.
I recommend that you install Fedora20 and then install the Libre-Kernel..

There is now another way to have a 100% free fedora: Install:http://gdnewhat.org/ that is 100% free; replace gnome 3 by xfce; replace (if you want) claws mail by sylpheed; and add blag icons and theme.

Hope you find the way past Uefi !
