  • Description: Incapability to download Fyde OS 18 on a laptop I’ve verified to be 2019 or greater. Upon booting the flash drive in UEFI mode, it gives me a black screen, not even showing the splash screen. Booting into BIOS mode gives the “Wrong EFI Signature” error. 2 Flash drives have been tested, 1 of them a 16GB GPT partitioned version and the other an MBR 128GB. Drives were written with Rufus 4.4

Update, Resolved via downgrade to Fyde 17. Fyde 18 appears to be incompatable with my laptop model. If possible, would love a fix for this device in specific, “HP Laptop Model 14-cf2111wm”
