Gaffer Tape, yes (your signature)!  What do you mean by CSM (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CSM)?  I don't know the system longer than a few days, but I've tried everything the BIOS/UEFI setup offers for booting, and if memory serves I have started the first install from USB via `Legacy' boot.  Interestingly i can boot the USB-stick with the jigdone debian-10.9.0-amd64-xfce-CD-1.iso any time.  I cannot boot the (other) USB-stick with (umph) https-downloaded debian-live-10.9.0-amd64-xfce.iso, the Dell says depending on used boot options either `no bootable media found' or similar -- or it says `isolinux.bin missing or corrupt'.  My workinglap HP Elitebook says the same about the latter USB-stick.  And I have seen some debian bug-reports about similar problems with ISO-images on USB-sticks...

Solution available?

Maybe a younger or an older Release?

Brgds, e.
