I am trying to install Sparky 4.0 MATE x64 onto my desktop machine:
Asus M5A99X Evo r2.0 (UEFI)
TeamGroup Vulcan RED 16GB DDR3 1600MHz
AMD Radeon R9 380 4GB graphics
Samsung Evo 850 256GB SSD
2TB Toshiba 7,200rpm hdd
After opening the SparkyLinux installer (not the old one), I select the language, keymap and timezone. Next is the screen to enter a username and hostname. On completing those steps and clicking 'Next' the partitioning screen is supposed to appear.
Unfortunately nothing happens after clicking 'Next', the installer just hangs forever then goes blank:
Does anyone have any ideas or help please? I'd much rather install Sparky than LMDE2 or Ubuntu (LMDE2 is nice but is based on Jessie/stable - with such a high end desktop I'd rather have the newer kernel, MESA and drivers Sparky provides from Testing).
I installed the same ISO perfectly in a virtual machine, but it fails on bare metal.
