Unable to Install UE5.5

I had to build my .ISO on an 8.5 GB dvd. The other 4.7 GB dvd's I have did not have enough free space. The checksum was correct.

When I boot the dvd the message I get is that I do not have enough memory to either install the Live system or to install directly. I use a Ryzen 7 processor with 16 GB of memory. The mother board is the msi x370 sli plus. I use the Toshiba 512GB OCZ RD400 SSD which runs at 32 gb/sec and not the slower Sata3 speed of 6 bg/sec. There is a current Linux distribution on that drive which I plan to overwrite.

I do not know how to do a virtual install method which I noticed in another thread.

I have used the Ultimate Edition distributions in the past and was really looking forward to this particular distribution.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I tried installing this OS in Virtualbox to test it and I could not get it to run but when I installed it on a USB Stick and used f12 to choose where to boot from and picked USB and ran it Live and did install and manually choose install to disk both ran fine. I would try using a USB with more than 4GB of space, if that doesnt work come back and post more info and someone from this site can help you out

I've typically always tested a new ISO in a Virtual Environment
& yes - I've had a few bad ISOs as well.

the most recent was for UE50 32 bit, where it was downloaded several Time,
& all of them would not install into any VB. ..

usually, I'd wait a day or two, or even a week,
for the server's to maybe re-sync & then try again for that ISO.
- this technique will usually work & you do get a working ISO - - eventually.

but, not so with the UE50 32bit - - never did get that to work.
whereas the UE50 64bit was just fine .. .

since it's an LTS - that's why I've been wanting to place it onto my new machine.
- in the end, I've used the 64bit version, instead.

unfortunately - it's very difficult to contact TheeMahn in order to get an original ISO
to be re-uploaded to the various servers .
as such, a bad ISO does get synced to all those servers & you can't get it replaced.
however - most of the ISOs are good & are quite use-able.

which is a rather long way of saying, that the UE55 ISO may be bad,
& that you've got no real way of checking it.

Interesting as I can say I have never come across a bad ISO myself but I along with many others did have issues with installing Ultimate Edition 5.4. Finally someone was kind enough to find a work around to the Boot Issue. I typically use a Checksum and then test in a virtual environment like VirtualBox. I have had issue with getting them to install correctly in Virtualbox and am guessing it is something on my end as I have used a USB stick to make it Live and haven't had any trouble. The installation went very smoothly and the OS ran very well.

5.6 has support for Ryzen & AMD Vega. Probably the only Linux based OS to have it. I built the package for it. 5.5 Has Ryzen support, no Vega.

First, let me say that running 5.5 live is the most impressive OS to date for any OS out there. Very polished! However I've downloaded it twice and cannot get it installed to a hard drive. When the option menu appears the keyboard arrows will navigate, but the option to install does not recognize the enter key and freezes the menu. After about 30 seconds it loads Live automatically and works great. Has anyone else run into this issue?

Dug around and found the install from inside the Live desktop. Installation went great... except... after logging on all that comes up is Kodi. !!!
As I am not familiar with Kodi at all, how in the heck do I get out and to the desktop?
