I can't install Elementary os 6 in four different ways:

  1. USB: I'm booting to installation, but then I select custom install it loads and then shows white window.

  2. Grml rescue boot(I'm using Zorin os 16): Can't boot just shows many /init line 49 can't open /dev/sr0 no medium found lines.

  3. UNetbootin: Same as in option option 1.

  4. DVD: It's not even booting.

Please help!

  • Try reformatting the USB drive, give it a fresh FAT32 partition. I had some trouble with booting the installer, however after trying a few formatting options, I managed to get it working. Also, please give us more information about your system, it's hard to give advice without knowing any specifics.

Me2. Looking for new distro after Mint 20 screwed up samba amd MX cannot handle hot swapping drives.

Guess what - it aint going to be elementary if you cannot install it.

A lot of modern distros seem to screw up - get back to basics
