i tried to do a full installation on a 16 gb usb, but something went wrong

the os is stuck after the logo with the cursor (movable) on a black screen or (if I press enter twice) a picture of a tree branch and nothing else https://i.sstatic.net/DJUHf.jpg

the exact same thing happens even in live usb 'try elementary'' mode.

I believe it's the graphic card, either with nomodeset on or recovery mode everything loads (in low resolution with the first) in recovery mode I have installed intel microcode in drivers with no effect

Does it load after a while (1/2 minutes)? If yes, you're facing a bug in dbus like I did.


sudo mv /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.desktop.backup
