First time installing any Linux in general and I'm trying to install to a Windows XP computer via USB on the hard drive.
I've tried installing multiple versions of Linux (Ubuntu, mint etc.), used multiple live-disk creators, tried different ISO's, and used a number of USB's yet I encounter the same problem every time:
Upon finishing the installation when I restart the system as prompted, I either go back to the installer mode if I boot from USB, or get a black screen with a blinking cursor if I boot from the hard drive. Sometimes depending on the USB live creator used, there's an option to boot from hard drive, but that has no success as well.
Thank you in advance for reading!
