Would appreciate some help with installing Zorin 16 Pro on a new Asus Zenbook. I hope i've provided all the relevant details below. Many thanks in advance.
I'm trying to install Zorin Pro 16.2 Pro 64 Bit (alongside pre installed Win 11). When booting from the install USB in order to install Zorin, I get to the 'Try or Install Zorin' menu fine, but after selecting any of the choices, I get a black screen, non responsive to any keyboard inputs.
I have not been able to get to the Zorin install screen yet, so Zorin is not installed at this stage.
Asus Zenbook UX3404 14.5 inch, 2.8K 2880x1800
OS: Windows 11 pre installed
GPU: Intel Iris Xe
Secure boot disabled
Fast boot disabled
Encryption/Bit Locker in Win 11 set to OFF
What I've tried so far:
Read the forum posts on this issue and I understand it could be due to the Intel Iris Xe graphics support in the kernel OR 2) Windows blocking the running of another OS.
Re-flashed the live boot USB and tested on another Asus dual boot machine (older & with Nvidia graphics) - The USB works fine there.
Tried all Live boot menu options (Try or Install, Safe Graphics, Nvidia Drivers etc); they all produce the same black screen result
Tried entering the Grub recovery menu by holding L-Shift, or pressing Tab or Esc during boot. I can't get to the recovery menu with the little menu box and all the options (mem test etc), I can only get to the Grub text editor as described below. I also tried Ctr-Alt (F1-F8) during boot as suggested here ([SOLVED] Black screen after install - #2 by Aravisian), but to no avail.
