Thank you for all the replies! I haven't really used a mailing list before, so I'm not 100% sure I'm responding to the correct location. Do I hit "reply all" or just reply to the debian-user@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx address?
Anyway, I have disabled secure boot, but that didn't seem to solve the problem. My computer does not have a DVD drive, so I put the ISO (debian-8.8.0-amd64-netinst.
iso)on a USB stick. When booting my computer, I specifically click "use a device", then "USB Drive (UEFI)". The computer runs for a minute, then pops up the error message. I don't think boot order would change this, as I am booting specifically from the USB. I forgot to mention that I am attempting to dual boot my computer, so I don't wish to remove Windows completely.I have also tried rewriting the ISO multiple times, with both the complete and smaller installation sets. I can try another USB stick, but I don't have any lying around and would likely need to purchase a new one.
You are posting correctly as far as I can see. I have used Rufus and it worked easily. I assume that your usb stick works OK to store files in the conventional way.
I have found that I needed to repeat usb stick iso file burning or whatever term you use for it; sometimes it didn't work ie wouldn't boot from it the first time - try wiping the stick and using Rufus again to burn the iso onto it and have another go.
