Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS.
I get this error while booting from USB.
Other info:

Windows 10.
AMD Phenom II X4 955.
Samsung SSD 840 EVO 120GB.
Western Digital WDC WD5000LPVX-22V0TT0.


I did some research but couldn't solve it.

Linux isn't difficult to install, you're just dumb.

Remove you GPU and use integrated for the time being.

Looks like your GPU is causing a ruckus.
Interestingly, you left that out of the OP.

I wonder if that was on purpose.

Try to install the Nvidia driver and see if it works.

This is an nVidia bug.

This is good advice, dumbass. Remove going, boot and install Ubuntu, go into your newly installed Ubuntu and get the nouveau drivers, restart with you plugged in.

>> No.62444770

Use something else to create a bootable USB. Nothing strange with you GPU... But just make sure you have proprietary drivers (I believe you will have a easier time installing Linux Mint)

>> No.62444771

Was there an option menu before it happens?

How did you download the .iso? There is a possibility it's corrupted.

>> No.62444806

Depends on many factors
Either weird hardware combinations, unknown parts or sometimes bad luck.
This isn't exclusive to Linux of course, but especially given the little financial backing it's difficult to at least somewhat damage control a normal installation process for billions of hardware combinations

Once they don't have to deal with stuff like this anymore, it turns out way better. For example Raspbian installs flawlessly

>> No.62444848

couldnt you just plug the video cable into the integrated port instead of the card?

I would just install a distro without Xorg if I got such problem.

I will check this.

From Ubuntu website.

>> No.62444917

No point in using Linux if you are going to install the proprietary drivers. I suggest going back to Windows.

>> No.62444939


>> No.62444951

I really doubt the iso is corrupt. File corruption is such a rarity today that I'd only suspect it as a last resort. However, since it takes like 5 seconds to verify, it's better to rule out first

>> No.62444968

>How to boot with nomodeset

>> No.62444969

Linux is not difficult to install on most hardware but Nvidia's graphics hardware can be. Nvidia is notorious for not supporting open source projects. They do not provide developers or even any documentation to help the kernel project support their hardware. The only open source driver is nouveau which works somewhat on older cards but on newer ones it can be completely broken.

In order to use Nvidia graphics you have to install the proprietary drivers from Nvidia themselves.

In the future consider using AMD for Linux support, or just use Intel's integrated graphics

>> No.62444976

It's your GPU.

When you select your boot options, press tab and edit the command line. At the end put nomodeset

Should boot up after that

Something else, then select the partition you prepared and set it up as ext4. That should do the trick.

Wine came preinstalled on Zorin Linux but it should behave the same on every distro. It doesn't work on my laptop for some reason but it works on my PC. Not sure if Wine usually misbehaves on laptops or if there's another issue.

Doesn't really matter. Would recommend the one you install the OS to.

>> No.62445772

you need a root (/) partition at the very least
swap and home are optional
whichever drive you select for the bootloader, grub will probably go there and let you choose which OS to boot

remember after you restart when the install is done, you'll still have to boot with the "nomodeset" option until you install the proprietary drivers for your GPU

someone can correct me if something is off
