That means the UEFI system can't find any valid boot partition on your drive.
Without more information about your system and how that drive is used, we can't offer anymore assistance.
Furthermore, some computer manufacturers have the UEFI-system hardcoded searching for 'Windows Boot Manager' and refuse to boot if it can't find it. For such a computer, it may not be possible to use Linux on it.

What information exactly you need? The laptop is the c340 14api with 3500u. It came with windows 10 home OEM.

That's a Levono system with detachable tablet. You need to install the Debian release WITH closed non-free firmware to get this to work. Furthermore, I recommend entering the system UEFI menu and disabling Secure Boot.
Use http://cdimage.debian.org/mirror/cdimag ... rent-live/

Thank you for responding so quickly. The testing version for some reason can't run on my laptop, while it boots in live, if i try to install either throught calamr or graphic it gives me multiple errors and fails. Right now I'm writing an iso of non free with dd command and i ll try to install it. Do you know of they usb must be in specific format or the dd command format it automatically?

Please try the stable version first. I don't recommend using Testing unless you're experienced and know what you're doing.

Of course Brother. The links you sent me. It failed to boot just like gnome. Right now I'm downloading kde stable to check it out, if it also fails, I'm starting to believe that testing has an implement feature for uefi native; or its for newer hardware; Literally don't know.

Kde stable also failed in native uefi. I think I'm forced to use testing.

More feedback. Xfce testing while being on live usb working nicely, the same after the first boot if you install it. If you reboot the pc its going crazy with screen tearing etc. I installed cinnamon testing and even after a reboot it seems to work. Let's see.

On either a Live session or a working Cinnamon desktop, can you pleeeeeeeaaaase install inxi and give us the results of "inxi -Fxxz" in the terminal, so we have some idea of what hardware we have to deal with?
