I booted the USB on my desktop. It loaded antix to a command line in which I could install antix.

I booted the USB on my laptop with safe mode. It booted to rox-icewm live session.

Why would it boot to different places just because of different hardware?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But now with safe mode I can use it live on my laptop which is what I wanted, so I'll mark this as solved. Thanks for everyone's responses.

It is because of the hardware.

You could post hardware details.

This laptop is equipped to run Ubuntu. It has drivers for Ubuntu 12.04 on Dell's website. May be it is kernel problem which Lubuntu 20.04 can handle. I had a dell Inspiron laptop which had Ubuntu preinstalled. Debian liveDVD with non-free firmware didn't even boot on it but MXLinux did. Lubuntu 20.04 is coming after a week. You may give it a try.

This is running live off the USB. I haven't installed it to the harddrive. I did have to boot into safe video mode. Why would antix load Ubuntu drivers?

I didn't mean you should load Ubuntu driver on AntiX. I meant Ubuntu is suitable for this particular laptop model. May be it has custom firmware for your graphics card. If you can boot into safe mode this rules out the possibility of a faulty USB drive. Lubuntu 20.04 stable will be out tomorrow. You should give it a try.It won't hurt.
