Yes, I did check the checksum, and verified the burn.

I tried to let it stay in "black window" mode, but it won't start.

Your message inspired me to try to boot from DVD using the bios SATA 
option (versus the EFI default, I am on HP Z620 workstation), and it 
booted normally, with no delays.

Thank you,


PS: I love the new SSD and 4k partitioning options
