Well on top of the annoying popping noise (which I hope will not break my speakers, but I can not get an answer from anyone here, so this post is probably a huge waste of my time also) I can not get Ubuntu 16.04 to boot after installing it. I've tried installing the bootloader to the SDA to no avail, then to the SDA1 EFI partition, also to no avail. I really want to use Linux but I need to iron these issues out. Truthfully this forum has rarely given help, mainly sarcastic or plain stupid responses, or quite frankly, none at all. I don't want to create more user accounts in other forums but I will have to if this so called "computer community" doesn't start helping people more. NO I do not want to use Windows NO I will not purchase another PC NO I will not use an older kernel NO I will not use BSD I WILL use Linux.
