HELP - Linux Installation from Windows 10


Okay,so I've been trying to boot linux from a USB drive, and with every single distro I've tried, only mint running in compatibility mode showed a few lines of text before freezing.Every other time, I've run into the same black screen, from Archlabs to Fedora.

Specs:

CPU: Intel Celeron N3060
RAM: 2GB 1600Mhz
HDD: 32GB EMMC
GPU: Random intel integrated thingy

If I could get any help whatsoever, I would be very grateful

Would be helpful to know brand/model of computer, since things like "random intel integrated thingy" tell us nothing. Are you trying to install 32 or 64 bit distros? And a 32GB hard drive is *TINY*...you can get things to install, but not sure how useful it's going to be after installation.

Also, are you trying to install UEFI, or legacy mode? More details would be helpful, but I find it hard to believe your machine WON'T run Linux, although it's going to be a bit slow.

It looks like my Intel NUC (N3050 CPU). It can run Linux alright, and it can even decode H.264 and H.265 in hardware, making it perfect Kodi frontend. Consuming less then 10 W it can be always on without affecting your power bill. The only quirk it has is 32 bit UEFI. Not sure how many distros out there can handle it without manual intervention.

This is the graphics.
Code:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Atom/Celeron/Pentium Processor x5-E8000/J3xxx/N3xxx Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:22b1] (rev 21)
        Subsystem: Intel Corporation Atom/Celeron/Pentium Processor x5-E8000/J3xxx/N3xxx Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:2060]
        Kernel driver in use: i915
Indeed, Syrup_27 may have something different ...

How are you creating these usb drives?

Can consider a 32 bit version.

Is the problem a backlight issue. Can you use a flashlight to see if the screen is really on?


Interesting page. https://medium.com/@UNIT_0xBCD/linux...0-cf6ef1d8ec63
