@PCNetSpec: It's an ASUS s500ca.

Turns out to have been a simple fix. I just shut down and then turned on my computer after trying to instll it again, and somehow that stuck when "restart" didn't. Happily running Peppermint now, thanks, all of you!

Thanks, both of you!

AndyInMokum, here's the output:

I tried both the desktop icon and the boot menu - think my last try was with the boot menu. And cool, I'll give Lubuntu a shot if I can manage it. I think I only have this laptop and USB drive right now.   :-\

PCNetSpec: When I take it out, I get UEFI settings, but without any boot options. Leaving it in, I get the boot menu and can escape to GRUB2 prompt.

I'm new to Peppermint and Linux in general and just tried to install Peppermint 4 on my Asus-s500ca laptop. The installation completed without any errors and told me to restart. When I do, I end up looping back to the installation menu (with the preview and other options).

I can escape from that, but end up in the GRUB2 command line. I don't know what files I should be loading or how to load them, what I should set my root as, or how to find the path to the kernel.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!
