I've been trying to install Zorin on my Macbook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013, currently running the latest version of Catalina), but all the options to Try/Install the OS from the bootable SD card (I don't have a USB drive on me) I've created from the ISOs present the following error:
DMAR-IR: [Firmware Bug]: ioapic has no mapping iommu, interrupt remapping will be disabled
It then enters a register dump and timeout waiting for a hardware cmd interrupt in a never-ending cycle.
Essentially, it's an identical problem to this previous post: but I've been unable to follow the steps provided there. The version of the terminal I'm able to open on both the regular and Lite Zorin ISOs says the following:
Minimal BASH like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB lists possible command completions. anywhere else TAB lists possible device or file completions.
And it fails to recognize sudo or nano as acceptable commands.
I've spent the past couple days trying to resolve this on my own based on the resources available online (and trust me, I've been doing a fair amount of reading), but I think it's at this point I should say I've done everything I can on my own and ask people here.
