    Well, this is becoming obnoxious pretty quickly. Balena Etcher didn't work, it'll boot but the Windows installer says it can't find drivers. Ventoy also boots, but then loading the installer fails with a Windows screen saying blah-blah fail...

    Windows 7 Pro retail-something-or-other. Thanks for the link, I'm not sure I've seen that particular one. I have seen some similar ones. My particular flavor of Linux needs updating and the kernel is apparently behind so it has some file...

    Currently I have a Micca Origain DAC/amp I'm using with a pair of JBL Stage A130's. The setup is decent enough but I can't use any headphones with it. I think it would be a good idea to add a headphone setup, but I'll probably need a new DAC...
