Ubuntu 12.10 Remastersys v 3.0.4-2 on an old DELL Desktop using BIOS Mar.11.2013

Hi.

I created an ISO image using Remasterys, and burned the image to a DVD.

The remastersys live DVD boots (3.6gb), and gives me the usual options of installing the LIVE CD/DVD, or Restoring the System. Regardless of which option I choose, I end up at a DELL Recovery Screen, which gives me 2 further options:
'Restore Entire System' or
'Restore Only Linux OS'

I have no idea why this screen is coming up, but it has the Ubuntu Icons and top Menu Bar in a window that takes up 1/4 of the screen, with Ubuntu original brown colours.

If I choose 'Restore Only Linux OS' and 'Continue', I'm in an infinite loop. However, if I click on 'Quit' anytime in the loop, up comes my beloved Desktop. All looks AOK at that point.

When I click on either of the Install Icons, I'm back to yet another DELL Recovery Screen, which says: "Error: This recovery media only functions on a Dell System."

A FEB.12.2013 Remastersys Live DVD works fine. Other than regular Ubuntu System Updates, nothing has changed.

I don't know if this has anything to do with Ubuntu Patches and Secure Boot issues?? Can anyone help?

Thanks,

M...
