Greetings. I was happy to acquire a new HP desktop with an i7 11th gen CPU (11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-11700F @ 2.50GHz) and a Radeon(TM) RX 550 GPU. Unfortunately, both the live DVD and live USB media for Zorin OS 16 hang at the logo screen after successfully verifying all checksums. I tried all Zorin boot options with both old and new video driver choices with the same result.
For giggles, I burned a DVD of Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS to see if that made a difference - and this also hung on boot-up, not even getting to a logo screen.
What do you all suggest? I need to solve the live boot problem before considering installation of Zorin (or Ubuntu, for that matter) as a second OS.
By the way, I was able to boot from both the USB and live DVD into Zorin OS 16 on my old dinosaur Core 2 Duo HP PC (that currently has Zorin OS 12.4 installed).
I really want to get this new PC running Linux so I am not just leasing a version of Windows.
Thanks in advance for your help!
