- your installer seems an alpha, I would first try with a more robust
one (Stretch)...
- Does your USB stick only fail to boot automatically or does it also
fail to boot when you select it as the boot medium in the UEFI boot
option menu?

> I’m puzzled…  Have you tried to boot the installer from a USB stick on a Turbot?  Or did you always use a physical DVD drive?  What’s the difference between them that causes one to boot and the other to be ignored?

I am sorry if I gave you the false impression that I own or have used
this hardware: that is not the case...
