Thanks for that info, too!  I have installed RC2 x64 STD edition here and am running that now.  Firefox is a pretty big CPU and RAM hog, so I installed Xombrero and am running that.. with this one tab open, CPU is averaging around 25-30%, and memory usage is at 27% at the moment.  It depends on what sites I have open in the tabs, too- Facebook is pretty much a hog, too.   I'm liking this VL STD desktop -- the brushed-metal screen background looks sharp, and the menus are great. Btw, I didn't have to mess around with the video card settings on this version of VL; graphics mode came up after the install; no problems. I think Lubuntu has met its match.  :-)

The image showing Void linux has a "grub_uefi" part.
I assume your computer will only boot uefi images.
VL iso is not configured for uefi boot.
Unetbootin did not configure the USB stick for uefi boot, I did not pursue it any further than that.

Unfortunately, I'm out of ideas, sorry.

don't see anything about EFI on the USB stick.

Not sure what you are trying to indicate with this comment.

The 2 images I posted are for Void and Vector on the same USB Flash Drive.

No.. unetbootin does not look like an option, don't see anything about EFI on the USB stick.

I should have mentioned that Secure Boot is disabled.

I know I have gotten unetbootin to work in the past by making some manual edits, lemme experiment some with that.


Ok

Another note, my Laptop is setup to use UEFI.
I think you need "legacy boot".

Looks like the VL hybrid ISO may not work with your system. :( 
Is burning a DVD an option for you?

I have a Lenovo B590 Laptop purchased in 2014 and this is the first time I have ever had such a problem and I have tested various distros in that time.

What difference does burning a DVD make?

The Void iso also uses the iso9660 File System and it boots fine.

Is there something different about the way the Vector iso is created that does not make it universally compatible?

Burning a DVD is NOT an option because that is wasteful especially when USB Flash drives can be used and the iso being offered for testing is only a Release Candidate.

Would using UNetbootin make a difference?

Another note, my Laptop is setup to use UEFI.

Using the Gnome Disk Utility, I captured the data you can see in the images below.

Can the parition type of the Vector ISO be changed?

You may not be able to use them directly but they probably can be used for inspiration.
Good luck!
