Zorin OS 16 not booting

Until you are able to upgrade the ram, to stay on 16 core you could utilize a swap partition since gnome uses anywhere from 1.8 to 2+ gb of ram itself. The swap will help but will not be as fast as ram (a necessary upgrade if you haven't been able to tell already) but will get you booted and using zorin, along with aravisian's recommendation, it will run on your current configuration. Not great, but will be usable.

Solution I found thanks mainly to Aravian and this Forum:

  1. I went to Grub Recovery Mode
  2. Opened the TTY (Root System)
    mount -o remount,rw /
    systemctl disable NetworkManager-wait-online.service
    sudo nano /etc/default/grub
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash", Deleted "quiet splash"
    sudo update-grub
  3. Back at Grub Recovery Menu => Resume Boot

Thanks a lot Guys!!!!
