Later:

I have been doing some investigating, although not positive, and it seems to me that the problem with Ubiquity is also a Ubuntu problem with the standard Debian Installer, which Ubiquity is either based on or uses behind the UI. I say this because the Deb Installer will not recognize, find, my hard drives. It did find them in earlier releases.

Perhaps they are too Mac/IBM oriented to work on our machines.(?)
Thanks a lot for investigating.

ISO downloaded & burned, boots to the desktop on my x1000 with r9 270 card.
I gather the installer's not working. I've seen the install choke before with another ubuntu archive, not finding the HD.

Many thanks for testing! :-) We have no idea because of the problem with the installer. Maybe we could take another installer.

Me too.

A while later;

Done. Success! 8-)

Great job Christian. That's worth at least 4 'Ata Boy's :idea:

Posted from Moz-FF on Ubuntu-mate on /sda4.

I did not know if the kernel you supplied would work without the RAMDISK so I used my All-in-One 4.8rc4, and besides, the RAMDISK is now on a ext4 and CFE does not like it.

Anyway, its working.
