Question Zorin 7.1 Hangs during installation


I am having issues installing Zorin 7.1 x64

For some reason the installer hangs or freezes when the wizard asks to select a language to continue installation. (the first step)

The loading wheel spins about 5 times before completely freezing and the computer stops responding

I have tried with no result:

-Checking the md5 on the iso file
-Loading the installer under the safe mode provided at boot
-Disconnecting hardware from the computer:
*Video Card
*Cd drives
*SD card reader
*wireless card / network
-tried the nomodeset AND acpi=off

I am skeptical about this being a hardware issue since this machine was running windows just fine. Also the live version of Zorin 7.1 works perfectly.

PC specs Desktop:
2.9 GiB RAM
Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E8500 @ 3.16GHz × 2
Gallium 0.4 on AMD RV670

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am out of ideas.

Thank you!

Did you download the iso and burn it, and if so did you check it's md5sum? I had this problem with a corrupted download once.

I did. The Md5 Sum matched.
