After having some problems with USB drives with my first Zorin installation on 1 laptop, I was able to resolve the issue with help form this forum. So then I became excited with Zorin such that I decided to install it on my main laptop, but now I am stuck again only with a different problem, so I am here again requesting some guidance.
I choose the installation with the NVIDIA option because this laptop has a GeForce GTX 1080 with Max-Q design version 431.53(found this info from system information window in windows prior to wiping it out to install Zorin).
The installation was fine until I started tinkering around. I wanted to learn how to create new user accounts. I did create an account but when rebooting, I get a black screen with a border for a few seconds and then it changes to a completely black screen and no further booting occurs.
So I decided to try to reinstall Zorin again with the same NVIDIA installation option but it doesn't install, instead, the new installation does the same thing. It boots to the black screen with the border and then goes to the black screen and nothing happens.
To be clear, it will boot from the USB and I can perform the installation process with ease. The problem begins when rebooting from the hard drive.
At the moment I am simply doing trial and error with the various installation options to see which one works.
I am hoping one of the installations options work such that I can get to boot and then update NVIDIA drivers assuming it's the video drivers that is affecting the display.
But secondly, even if there was a more sophisticated way to troubleshoot without reinstalling, my question is why can't I reinstall?
While I try the installation options, If anyone can point me in the right direction to get Zorin installed, please comment and let me know.
