Install and using Zorin OS Lite on death card AMD

Hi guys !
I have an case like this:
I'm currently using Windows 10 on my 10 year old laptop which have 2 card:

  • Onboard Intel Hd 3000 -> currently using
  • AMD card - But is death

I'm thinking switch to Zorin OS 16.
So i want to ask, is possible to install Zorin Os in my case? Like install and update driver on only for onboard (Intel HD 3000)?

how to use intel hd3000 instead of AMD on notebook when running Ubuntu 22.04

The Intel HD 3000 is an integrated graphics processing unit (GPU) that is commonly found in laptops. To use the Intel HD 3000 instead of AMD on a notebook running Ubuntu 22.04, you can follow these steps:

  1. Check your system configuration: Open a terminal and run the command lspci -vnn | grep VGA to check the graphics card information. This will show you the graphics card model and manufacturer.
  2. Disable the AMD graphics card: If you have an AMD graphics card installed, you can disable it by running the command sudo grub-update and then selecting the “nomodeset” option at boot time. This will force the system to use the Intel HD 3000 graphics card.
  3. Install the Intel graphics driver: You can install the Intel graphics driver by running the command sudo apt-get install intel-linux-graphics-installer. This will install the Intel Graphics Installer, which will allow you to switch to the Intel HD 3000 graphics card.
  4. Switch to the Intel graphics card: Once the Intel Graphics Installer is installed, you can switch to the Intel HD 3000 graphics card by running the command sudo intel-graphics-installer --switch-to-igpu. This will switch the system to use the Intel HD 3000 graphics card.

Note: Before making any changes to your system, make sure to back up your important data and files. Additionally, be aware that disabling the AMD graphics card may affect the performance of certain applications that rely on it.

It’s also important to note that the Intel HD 3000 is an integrated graphics card, which means it shares system resources with the CPU. This may affect the performance of demanding applications that require a lot of graphics processing power.

Thanks you so much.
I'm currently creating usb for Zorin by using balenaEtcher . Do i need to select safe graphic mode on first ever boot ?

Give it a whirl and see what happens.
