You have on board Intel graphics, that is very well supported in linux. You will not have to deal with the hybrid Bumblebee, etc. etc. If you have added another video card, you can mention it. But you stated that it does work with the live version running off of the USB. It appears to be a very nice board. https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-Z170MX-Gaming-5-rev-10/support#support-manual

Internet connection - wired ethernet or wifi. The manual seems to say that it has no wifi on the board. Plugging into ethernet will solve any problems with crappy (for linux) wifi dongles. You can always fix that later. Sparky comes with the non-free firmware all set to go, so hopefully you will be good with that. There are still a few dongles that are a real ... however.
QuoteTake a break, get some rest and try the stable branch of sparky.
