Hi, I just purchased a Dell Inspiron-17 3780...
256 M.2 NVME with 2 TB 5400 Mechanical Data Drive
8th Generation Intel i7-8565U, Intel UHD Graphics 620 and a AMD RX520 W/2GB Ram
16 GB Ram, Realtek ALC3204 Audio, I will Get a Replacement Broadcom WiFI/BT chip afterwards.
Whiskey Lake...

I was able to install Ubuntu 19.04 on the NVME from a USB Stick, I Had to get rid of BitLocker config as well as Windows etc.... When i try boot with Unibeast it goes into Diagnostics and wont boot from the Unibeast USB. ANY IDEAS ????

LOL... yes i read it . when i chose the laptop i looked for hardware that was as compatible as possible. I dont have any issues with my Desktop, unfortunately laptops always seem to throw you a curve. My guess is something either in the UEFI bios settings or some file (patch) needs to be put into the \EFI\BOOT or \EFI\CLOVER on the usb stick. If you are saying that Unibeast is for Desktops and not for Laptops what are my choices for Laptops ?
