  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Here's some common reasons and / or mistakes why pop won't install.

To get you started though, let's see what is going on in your BIOS and partition.
Have you disabled secure boot and fast boot?
Have you selected UEFI? I don't think a new Asus would have legacy BIOS, but check anyway.
If your BIOS is UEFI mode, when booting the live USB did you choose the option that began with UEFI?
Did you create an individual EFI for Pop?
Did you choose the "Modify Partitions" Option?
