Processor: Intel Core i5-10400
Motherboard: Gigabyte B560M H, bios version F6
Graphics card: Currently not installed
Boot usb: Sandisk Cruzer Blade
Newly purchased custom build PC, came with no OS installed. I've created a bootable usb using ventoy 1.0.74, with zorin's 16.1 core & lite 64b ISOs, as well as windows 10 21H2 and mint 20 cinnamon 64b.
Multiple attempts to install zorin core / lite in either standard or safe graphics mode have resulted in either black screen + hanging (numlock is on and unresponsive, no reaction whatsoever for 20+ minutes), or an instant reset without any boot messages appearing prior.
Mint's default trial has given a few messages, then auto reset; whereas its compatibility mode booted successfully, though I didn't attempt to install it thence.
Said messages included: machine check, failure creating named object \adbg, error communicating to tpm chip, unable to read config index 0 descriptor/start: -32, chopping to 0 config(s), can't read configurations, error -32. Can provide a transcript if necessary.
Windows' boot went mostly without a hitch, aside from a few odd resets (eg during setup after selecting keyboard layout).
Please advise on what else can be attempted to proceed with zorin's installation.
P.S: In the bios, disabled secure boot and fast boot. There's some "windows 10 features" setting supposedly related to secure boot, I've attempted to fiddle with that one as well to no avail.
P.P.S: Have since installed mint. This one only boots successfully from recovery mode -> resume boot.
Updating from kernel 5.4 to 5.13 fixed the display & boot issues for mint, but zorin still inaccessible.
