Do you have Windows 10? By default, it really doesn't do a real shutdown when you tell it to--instead it hibernates. When Linux tries to access a disk that Windows has hibernated on, you will get that message about it being "dirty" and that it can't be mounted as read-write--otherwise, it just may be a damaged partition.

To help us--what is your planned disk and partion layout for dual boot?
How do you have Secure Boot and UEFI in your computer setup?

is not my first time installing windows and linux in dualboot,the first thing i do in windows is to take off that fastrestart thing,not to have windows have a hook on my hdds,i have stuff there to install and copy in linux,yes,it is windows 10,i gave up trying to install it,right now i have KDE Neon,Chakra linux,Antergos,OpenSuse leap,Mageia,Maui aside with windows 10,all work fine without a problem,the only problem was Debian 8.7.1 that didn't wanted to start at all,i can't give u any error or log of an error coz i couldn't get in it to find out about any,so,no idea why didn't wanted to start at all,was just freezin there at the beggining,no matter how many times i was rebootin my pc,was just getting stuck at that point

http://wiki.rosalab.com/en/index.php/ROSA_ImageWriter

ROSA ImageWriter is a program for writing ROSA installation image to a flash disk.


Maybe it's this? try the debian way, it's on the debian.org page where you get the install media.

rosa image writer is a program exactly like opensuse image writer that is part of many distros,and rosa is recomended by many distros to write their isos on usb flash drives,so i doubt that is the problem

There's no need to be defensive about it. By following the debian way, you can eliminate a 'possible' variable from the list of 'possible' culprits.

Just try it, if I'm wrong we eliminate a wildcard from the deck.

p.s. don't forget stevepussers asked info about the partition layout (# fdisk -l) and other info, okay?

And since Debian 8 has a 3.16 kernel dating back to 2014, it now often has problems with new Intel hardware released since then. If your machine came with Windows 10, that may well be the case. There is a backports repository for Debian 8 with package upgrades that can usually get it working on newer machines, but if you can't even boot, Debian Stretch might be your best bet.

well,it is a newer machine,it didn't came with windows 10,i made this pc buyin every part of it separately,and yes,the kernel must be the real issue,i did tryed the debian 9 rc2 dvd iso,it all worked like a charm,installed,i login and all worked normal,but the kernel was 4.9.0 i believe,so i hope u really think of gettin a newer kernel in the 8.7.2 maybe,coz is not working at all,i get in the same screen at the beggining and where it stops,so i guess i won't be installing and using this version til the kernel is updated to a newer (higher version) to actually boot on my machine,so pitty,i didn't stay with the rc2 installed coz i got to find out that the repo is kinda empty,could not find the most important app for me,the synaptic,besides that did got into some problems too,i had to strugle to delete the entry for the cdrom installation when it search for updates,and that in the discovery settings,but all ok coz ik that it's just a rc,not a final

Stuck how? Do you mean a blank screen? No graphical desktop? No command prompt?

If you had done a hard shutdown due to being "stuck", that message is normal.

If you seeing nothing but a blank screen, or command prompt, maybe the nVidia/Nouveau driver is not being started.

It sounds like the disc you burned is ok, or you wouldn't have got as far as you did.

Could I ask, do other Linux distros work ok? Do Ubuntu or LinuxMint live images start properly?

ok,lets see,as i said,not a black screen,to get to a black screen it should have at least started to load til the graphic driver,but it didn't got that far,after seen on the screen the first 2 line that every1 see when it starts to load ,the pls wait and the other line with the dunno how many files and dunno how many blocks,those 2 lines u can see them no matter what distro u use,at that exactly point,the pc get stuck,it just freez there on that screen,i did waited for more than 15 min hopping it will go,but it didn't,yes,that button reset did the second problem,i can imagine that it just didn't unmounted the partition and it was doing that,but there stoped too,after the a few more lines,but always be4 starting to actaully load anything,that is just mounting something i guess and is where all is game over and i can better tell that by just watching that command promt line that it just freeze,not blinking anymore
yes,all the other distros i am using are just fain,all working like a charm,no problems at all,no freez,no long time booting,nothing bad
but i do guess that must be the kernel,coz as far as i could try,the last iso of the Debian 9 rc2 dvd iso,worked fine,i got into it,did worked as all the other distros that i have on,other that that,i have no idea why is not working at all

i have an idea,it is possible to somehow put the kernel from the Debian 9 rc2 DVD iso into this 8.7.1 DVD iso version ? it would make Debian run on my machine,or can i somehow after installing the 8.7.1,from another distro to copy into the Debian partition that kernel ?
it is an idea only,even though i am not an expert,not even medium user,but if it's possible,can i have a "how to" steps for just doing that ?

What happens if you install without a desktop environment? Do you get to a login prompt?
