I am hoping that someone can assist me in booting/installing cloudready on my Dell Latitude E5500. The machine currently runs Windows 7. It has 4GB of RAM. The USB device being used is a SamData 64GB 2.0 USB. This device is certified until August 2022. I used the automatic USB maker. The USB device is first in the boot sequence. Thorough boot is selected.
The dell boots from the USB drive. The screen goes black for about a minute before a white screen with the cloudready logo appears. This is where I think the boot/install is not progressing any further. There is no interface to interact with. No cursor on the screen. Sometimes, I will get a cursor and some UI in the bottom right corner of the screen where I would be able to select wifi and click install. However, when I click install, the screen goes black and resets my cursor to the middle of the screen. A few seconds later the white logo screen will reappear and the process repeats. The installation never begins. I can Ctrl + Alt + F2 to get to the developer console, then Ctrl + Alt + F1 to get out of the console, but it usually freezes in the developer console. After 5-10 minutes I will be taken back to the white logo screen. If the screen dims or goes to sleep, I cannot wake it up and have to power off the entire device.
I have tried a lot of different bios setting combinations but nothing seems to make a difference. I am starting to think that my laptop cannot run cloudready, but I also think I may be making an error because the device is on the certified list. Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated.
