Parrot Mate 4.11.3 install will not begin

When booting from Parrot-mate 4.11.3 install USB, I get to the install menu, where I select “Try/Install”, but I get error : invalid magic number; error:you need to load the kernel first.

It looks like a problem with an ext* filesystem, but the boot usb is not using ext. The issue occurs whether I create the USB boot image using dd, or startup disk creator (ubuntu).

I couldn’t resolve the issue on my own, but I did try Parrot 4.11.2 instead, and, at least, that got me to boot into Parrot Live on the same machine.

ASUS ROG STRIX G713QR, AMD Ryzen 5900HX, Nvidia GT3070, 32GB DDDR4, 1tb nvme. Ubuntu 20.04

I will rearrange the hard drive to make space for a full install, alongside windows & ubuntu, so, no full disk encryption. But, someone may want to take a look at the 4.11.3 iso.

Thank you.
