    MrMasterKeyboard, 1. I am worried about your statement " I already have stuff and other things on there". Have you backed up the data on your Acer Aspire One D270 before you tried to load CloudReady? Loading CR will erase your hard drive. 

    2. Have you gone into your BIOS and made the USB launch first? It could be that Windows is still the first to launch.

    So what I meant by "I already have stuff and other things on there" is my Acer Aspire 5630. The D270 has a wiped HDD. So yeah, I'm trying to get it work. I passed the Boot Failed screen but now the Cloudready screen won't move. I hear the chime but noting else.

    I may be mistaken but having Googled the Intel Atom Processor, I found it is a 32-bit, not a 64-bit processor.

    To use CloudReady, one needs a 64-bit processor. There are Linux-Lyte OS's that are 32-bit.

    The Acer Aspire 5630 uses Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile processor which is 64-bit.

    Funny, I checked lscpu in Linux and op mode is 32/64 bit so it can do both. I can run 64-bit Win10 and Ubuntu 21.04. Don't know why.

    It's weird how a D260 can run it but a D270 has a problem. I know a D260 works because it was on the certified page.

    Michael Clarke, What do you make of the processor?

    Hi MrMasterKeyboard, it looks like the problem is with the GPU. Since you didn't provide the full specs of your device, I'm basing if off this review:

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Acer-Aspire-One-D270-26Dbb-Netbook.73534.0.html 

    From Neverware's Known Issues List:

    Issue 9045 - Intel GMA 500, 600, 3600, 3650 graphics are not supported

    Due to lack of proper device driver support, notebooks that include graphics hardware falling into the categories of Intel GMA 500, 600, 3600, or 3650 are not supported for use with CloudReady and may show major performance, installation, or basic boot issues.

    Oh well that’s sad. I thought there would be a way to bypass it and that computer seemed like a perfect fit for an OS like this one. Funny how my Acer Aspire 5630 works but for a short time and my HP Mini 110-1100 works with a 32-bit version that is no longer supported.

    Well thanks for your help anyways. I kinda hope that this may get fixed soon.
