Bug#1036038: debian-installer: Debian installer, graphical installer, live image, hang on Dell Inspiron 27

Package: debian-installer
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I'm attempting to setup Debian on a Dell Inspiron All-in-One system, either as dual boot or replacing the existing windows 10 OS.

The installer hangs after entering either the "graphical install", "install" or "live" options from the initial menu. I used the latest 64-bit installer: debian-11.7.0-amd64-netinst.iso, burned onto a USB drive using the dd command:

sudo dd if=/debian-11.7.0-amd64-netinst.iso of=/dev/sda
Here's a picture of the initial menu, and the hang:

Initial menu:


I've tried to disable most or all of the UEFI secure boot options on the BIOS and also the RAID/storage related settings:

Boot Configuration (1/3). Legacy Mode not supported??

Boot Configuration (2/3)

Boot Configuration (3/3)

Storage/RAID Configuration Storage/RAID Configuration

I just noticed the "Legacy Mode not supported" note in the BIOS,
which I suspect may be to blame.

Is it possible to install Debian on this type of system?
