If I could boot at all, I'd be happy to post the info requested.
New laptop. Removed existing NVME m.2 and installed larger one. I turned off secureboot, the drive is seen in BIOS and I have no problem installing to it.
Wanted to install Dragonized Garuda, which run flawlessly on my 10 year old laptop.
I boot into live session fine, and have no errors or issues when installing. After completion, after removing USB install media, it gets through GRUB, and hangs on what looks like a loading screen. (Dragon background with a smaller dragon in the center of a slowly rotating circle) There's a white progress bar under the rotating circle with the dragon in it that slowly moves for maybe 5 minutes, then just hangs indefinitely. I thought I'd put it out there before I try another distro. I really love the Dragonized version of Garuda and thought it would work without issue on newer hardware.
