Sorry for taking so long. Something came up yesterday, and I didn't have time to mess around with my laptop.

So, I re-downloaded the install image, but it gave me the same problem:

I noticed that two IRQs are considered invalid and that the QLBD is not configured, but I'm not sure if they could even cause something like this because I don't know what they are or what they do.

You're right. I probably should have looked for it, but I always feel like it's such a hassle hahaha...
