i couldn't update the bios .. i tried but it's locked in my laptop.
also, i couldn't unlock advance bios mode it's also locked.
Hp Support forums says that its permanently locked for some devices so u can do nothing.
Yes, ofc I have tried every possible way, watched yt videos too nothing works
Just saying, Windows is installing in 10 mins without any problem.
but none of the Linux distros is installing.
there is problem only with Linux on my laptop.
I'm not sure the problem is only with Linux... It sounds like the computer is very restricted and locked down.
Is this a Chromebook?
already shared exact model above ..
Its a Hp Laptop
Yes, yes you did. I facepalm myself.
Have you tried extending the HP BIOS settings?
yes sure i did tried unlocking my advance bios settings ..
But failed to do so
The last line says :
If you find the Advanced settings tab missing in the BIOS, that is because HP has locked the settings on your computer as the improper use of the Advanced settings in BIOS could damage your computer, and in most cases there is no way to unlock it.
I just had a look on HP support forum and there are a number of questions there about BIOS Advanced Tab hidden and HP stating no way of revealing it. So on that basis, no HP computers for me.
So basically now i should just shift back to windows 11 : )
Nobody could help me
Have your install attempts always included checking the box for "Check for updates during install?" If so, UNcheck that box and try installing...
Did you tried image ISO software or balena etcher to create live installation from Zorin? I remember in rufus, when you creating ISO for Linux need download some files to image ISO can be bootable for installation. When you put pendrive and start live can you installing in terminal neofetch? sudo apt neofetch or inxi? I know in Linux is command you can check if uefi is enabled or disabled.
Normally you need to set the Admin password to access Advanced.
On startup pressF9 this should open boot Manager, the use Ctrl+F1, Then F10 to open Advanced.
As for the issue not being able to install.
In BIOS under "Main" look of operating system ( Change this to "Other" not "windows OS.
Make sure you have TPM & Secure boot enabled.
I believe this isn't dual boot, if correct, then also enable "Fast boot".
If you wish to dual boot disable fast boot/startup. <<EDITED:
Hope this helps.
To clarify this:
TPM and Secure Boot should be disabled.
Fast Boot should always be disabled. Fast Boot locks the hard drive preventing read / write access in order to save a snapshot of the drive to allow for the Quick Boot.
If Dual Booting with Windows, some users may opt to enable Secure Boot. Secure Boot can interfere with some apps and drivers, like Nvidia.
Secure Boot is for Windows only. Microsoft, in good spirit, did sign off on a large number of Linux Packages to allow for dual booting, but they did not sigh off on them all. This can cause unsigned packages to be blocked at boot.
i unchecked check for updates .... disconnected wifi , tried everything
i have tried etcher , Rufus and also image iso ...
i followed every tutorial for creating bootable and its working fine on my pc .. but not on my laptop.
idk what u mean in last 3 lines

Check these out
It was already disabled but the guy said to enable it so i enabled it again .
No problem - Well, at least we have tried both.
Let's focus on this, though: HP Still locked you out from making adjustments on Advanced BIOS?
I dislike defeat. You can tell from my profile solutions count.
Nonetheless, we have ensured that the things in BIOS that may affect install are disabled.
We have ensured trying with and without checking for updates during install.
We have a BIOS settings screen that is locked down.
We have checked the .iso, the burner.
I am at a loss.
You might try a test on installing
Devuan Linux as it uses a different installer method.
MX Linux may be a good choice to try.
Maybe a different Distro will have more luck.
