I've had a chance to read the review and I can't figure out what could have gone wrong with Jesse Smith(reviewer) installation. Maybe the downloaded ISO was corrupted or the flash drive used was damaged(what method/software did he use to burn the ISO). He did the installation in virtual box/qemu/vmware??

I always use the command rsync -HPAav slackware.uk::slint/x86_64/slint-15.0/iso/slint64-15.0-4.iso . to download the ISO because in the web browser sometimes the download fails...

I also comment the review ;)

Thanks for the hint, George. It leaded to another comment of mine.
