so i REALLY REALLY want to switch to Linux, because i have been scripting in bash, have had my server for ages already and Windows is just terrible.
But i cant seem to boot into (let alone install) Ubuntu or Xubuntu.
The files are fine, my PC is healthy and the USB is also fine.
But when i choose to install or boot any of those 2, i get stuck at loading! At the part with the 4 dots, or the spinning circle to be precise.
Kali 2.0 works completely (aside from some very minor driver issues that i didnt come around to fix yet)
When i used Xubuntu 14.04.3, i saw an error:
"Feb 9 09:49:00 shannon kernel: [ 5196.092002] BUG: soft lockup - CPU#2 stuck for 22s! [irqbalance:954]"
That error was stolen from some other thread, if you need the actual error, i could supply said error.
What are the differences between Kali and Ubuntu that make me able to install Kali, but not Ubuntu? How can i find out what to do here?
Thanks in advance!!
P.S. NONE of the solutions worked that i could find, and i have been at this issue for hours
