Have you tried to do any setup with touchpad setup?

That is probably because of how the computers UEFI bios has to be setup to boot from other devices.
I have a very, very new computer.
I have to disable secure boot to even get the option to boot from USB or CD/DVD.
Other computers may require legacy boot and or disable secure boot.

Secure boot is to stop anything other than Windows from booting on the computer.

To be able to boot Linux with secure boot enabled.

Quote:
Microsoft offers a way to help Linux distributions boot anyway. That’s why some modern Linux distributions–like Ubuntu and Fedora–will “just work” on modern PCs, even with Secure Boot enabled. Linux distributions can pay a one-time fee of $99 to access the Microsoft Sysdev portal, where they can apply to have their boot loaders signed.

Quote:
while PC manufacturers have to include Microsoft’s main “Microsoft Windows Production PCA” key so Windows can boot, they don’t have to include the “Microsoft Corporation UEFI CA” key. This second key is only recommended. It’s the second, optional key that Microsoft uses to sign Linux boot loaders.
In other words, not all PCs will necessarily boot signed Linux distributions with Secure Boot turned on.

Hi boof

Try Fatdog, I have had it booting with UEFI.

In addition, it may solve your touchpad issue. However, the fact that the touchpad partially works make me suspect that it may have a fault.
