I have tried to install the latest .iso using different methods of putting it onto several different pendrives; the best result so far was with a 16gb Sandisk Cruiser stick…
Rosa and Rufus in Windows, Unetbootin, mkusb and finally dd on a cli in kubuntu 18.04 with differing levels of non-success.
The furthest I managed was with mkusb, where it booted but failed after a few seconds at “startkde”.
This is my test system:`root@kubuntu:/home/tony:
