No Installing on Lenovo E480

Downloaded all ISO's. When starting from ISO, the initial screen loads, fans spins up very high and the machine then shuts down abruptly. Any ideas?

Have you disabled secure boot?

Ubuntu paid M$ their blood money for their keys, so Ubuntu will boot with secure boot enabled. Almost all other Linux distributions can not boot properly with secure boot enabled.

You say you have tested all versions. Does that include the barebones versions?

Have you tested other flashdrives?

Is your bios up to date?

Have you tested your ISO's integrity?

What method did you use to burn your ISO to your flashdrive?

Have you tried alternet methods of burning your ISO's such as Etcher or using the dd command?

As you can tell from the amount of questions I'm asking, you have provided scant enough info to give you an informed opinion.

Please read the wiki article on how to post a bug report. You can post your inxi output from an Ubuntu live environment if none of the Garuda ISO's are working properly for you.

Those two, probably (best guess). Ubuntu & Mint's ISO creator applications aren't generally compatible with Arch-based distributions. Use these suggestions.
