I bought a new Dell at bestbuy with the reason on learning/using Linux and found that when I boot to the USB and Try the OS is works for a few seconds and freezes the computer.

I tried to install and the same thing happens as soon as its in the install process about 2 parts in.

There are error messages I managed to get on the boot screen that I need help figuring out a resolution to and a successful install.

Here is my PC (currently Win 10 Home) AMD A6 9220e Radeon R4 1.6 GHz 4 GB MEMORY

So just in case someone else was in the same boat I finally installed elementry os succesfully and its working great! I decided to update the bios on a hunch and turned off all secure, tpm and ueif boot options then boot only in f12 legacy to usb. I took a few tries as the installer froze but it finaly took.
