I may have more issues yet!

Thought I would try using the above and understanding that it meant
1. start the install
2. type C-A-F2 and then do a
3. modeprobe nvme.ko and that hopefully getting things going.

Well - - - this morning (checked and secure boot is still off and the usbstick
is still listed as the 1st boot device) the twirly (dumb) circly thing
starts on
the black screen and then after a bit it changes to the same twirly stars in
a circle thing but on a blue background and it then is booting into windows.

This is the same usb stick as yesterday so dunno what changed.

Do I have to reinstall the installer?
Are the problems going to be less if I install using the 1st dvd equivalent
instead of trying to do a net-install?
This is getting rather tedious.
Maybe I need to forget about having a laptop for reading books running
on linux - - - - just no can do.

Please advise.
