RE: Dell XPS 13 9365 - Won't boot USB in SATA Mode AHCI - Trying to install Ubuntu

Because in RAID mode (as the 9365 ships) linux won't see any drive it can install to.

I agree.  I used the live version of kernel 16.10 to check for the drive.  In AHCI/Disabled the drive was visible but in RAID it was not..  Possibly no SATA drivers being loaded for that configuration.

I did not have any problems booting the USB media and no Bios changes were necessary regarding Secure Boot or anything other than the SATA situation.

I did have to get another pair of glasses to see what was on the screen.. 😉
