After a fight with the installer I have Zorin 17 core

I couldn't wait for the lite version or the upgader so went ahead and installed over 16.3 partition after taking a Snapshot of 16 and RescueZilla image (2 hours).

I am now the proud owner of a 2008 machine running Zorin 17 core. Had a bit of trouble booting initially, had to go into advanced boot and select recovery mode with 6.5 kernel then continue to boot. Once I was in I went straight to drivers and installed the nvidia 450 drivers. Once that was done no more boot problem.

Had to disable the indexer was taking 90% CPU with no sign of stopping so followed the instructions by @Aravisian thanks.
