FS#751 - 64 bit OS install problems

Hello, Team
I have a Lenovo x201i laptop ( CPU Core i3 + 8GB RAM)
Firstly , i use 32bit latest version OS - very nice
but it can see only 3GB RAM and i decided install 64Bit system
i download latest beta version , write it on USB-stick and tryed
boot… before, i turn off security password to HDD acssess on BIOS
Boot starting and i see a menu ( a few options booting 64 bit system)
but if i tryed anything- after a few second leptop rebooting…

Hello Team,
thank you for answer, i tryed use that key, but unfortunatelly - the same situation- laptop after a 4-5 sec going to reboot… but 32bit version working without problems.. may be you could add in 32bit support more RAM than 3Gb only?

Don't worry Alexey, we will make the 64bit version working for you :)

The next thing to do is to verify the MD5 of your download. Do you still have the downloaded 64bit version somewhere? if so, you can verify the MD5 like on this example: https://forum.elivelinux.org/t/how-to-verify-the-md5-of-your-downloaded-isos/1433 , there's also tools for verify it in windows like: https://www.winmd5.com/

If you don't have the download anymore, try the option "debug" in the boot options to see if shows any useful message

Hello, team
MD5 is Ok,
i tryed debug options ( press TAB and add DEBUG to bootstring)
but only two-three second its working after - reboot..i see a log on screen but couldnt read it…

Mmmh, this is strange if the MD5 is correct, I mean, it should work :)

Which tool have you used to record elive on the USB?

Have you tried with other listed kernels too?

Ok there's a tip: in the case your smartphone has the option of "slow motion" in the camera (like iphone 5 and newer), you should be able to record your boot screen with your smartphone and then playing it, you can easily read the message or press pause on that moment. If you have any message before the reboot, this can be useful

I think that the problem can come from that, I'm improving the next build to avoid these issues, can you tell me how you recorded Elive into the USB? that info could help to improve it :)
