I'm currently trying to install Zorin OS 16 on my external SSD however every time I try to do so the installation always ends in the same error message, no matter whether I choose to install the bootloader on my main, internal SSD together with the Windows Bootloader or on the external SSD.
I am creating a 512MB EFI partition, a 2GB boot partition, a / partition and a swap partition. The installation always ends the same way. I already tried to use Grub repair, but considering the installation never actually finishes but crashes, even after booting into Zorin OS I have low resolution and neither Ethernet nor Wifi work so it's unusable. Any advice here? I've literally tried everything I could find so far. I'd also like to add that I have been distro hopping for a while to check out different distros. The last one I had installed was Manjaro and it was working flawlessly, booting straight into the Manjaro Bootloader where I could choose it or Windows.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: Automatic installation of Zorin OS alongside Windows fails the same way. I'm out of ideas.
