I have been trying to install Zorin on a Thinkpad A31p laptop for two days now and the installer crashes every time. I know it’s pretty old hardware, but I have installed Lubuntu and Mint on that same laptop with no problems.
The disk partition and other steps work fine but when it starts copying files it freezes, takes long time and eventually crashes. Sometimes it crashes immediately and sometimes when the progress bar is almost all the way to the end. I have tried all that has been recommended in the error message, I installed a new DVD reader, I burned the ISO in a new disk, I lowered the air conditioner, I tried a different hard drive… it keeps crashing every time.
