I'm asking for help to install Zorin 16.2 on a Macbook pro 7.1 (mid 2010, 13")
My Zorin installation crashes all the time. I tried Zorin Core and Lite, Safe Graphics, install with and without third-party software/drivers, another USB stick, change USB port and no luck.
If I "try" Zorin, it just works.
Downloaded again the ISO files, used rufus and belenaEtcher and it did nothing.
And no errors at all, the screen just freezes and the mouse icon gets kinda glitchy. Sometimes it crashes after the "update" screen, other times after the "installation type" screen or even while copying files.
Tried Ubuntu and Xubuntu without any issues.
May be something about the grafics card? its a Nvidia 320m.
Just did a hash test of the two ISOs and everything matches.
I have found that some USB installations of Linux (including Zorin) on Mac hardware are sometimes problematic. However I have had 100% success by burning the ISO onto a DVD and installing with a DVD player (internal or external).
i was facing the same problem when i tried to install zorin os.
make sure u DON'T connect to wifi and skip the “check for updates” option ( u can update that later after the installation ) but DON'T skip the option to install 3rd party drivers ( u don't need internet connection for that )
