I downloaded the KDE dragonized ISO (2.3GB) and created Bootable USB using
Tried with DD (in another windows laptop)
Tried with ISO with MRB partition (in another windows laptop)
Tried with ISO with GPR partition (in another windows laptop)
Tried with Balena Etcher (in another windows laptop)
Tried with creating the bootable pendrive in my ubuntu OS
But whenever I select my pendrive in my boot menu I get the following response
GRUB loading.. WELCOME to GRUB _
and the cursor keeps blinking and nothing else happens
Solutions tried -
I tried the off secure boot but for some reason i dont have such option in my bios
I am not using an UEFI laptop i think mine is MBR or GRUB cant find which one.
I used the same bootable pendrive in another laptop and it is working fine there.
U should check the minimum requirements of garuda dragonized, Your specs look very old, that could be a reason or try inserting ur usb in a 3.0 port
I just noticed I don't think so welcome to grub is shown when booting from a installation disk, Can u double check that u didn't by any chance download something else? Maybe a pre installed os I am not sure for this possibility
You laptop is UEFI-based (just quickly checked on the HP site), so at least in the next tests use an EFI formatted USB (although I see you already tried).
In that manual there was also a strange sentence on possible SATA drivers. I don't think this is the problem, because you're not yet accessing disks at that grub time from USB, but please check in your BIOS that SATA mode is set to AHCI.
