so I’ve found similar problems on different websites online and also on this forum, but couldn’t find a working solution to my case.
So I downloaded the (as of now) newest stable - ISOs of XFCE and Cinnamon trying to install them on my old Lenovo B570 (model: 1068GEG).
On my main notebook I am running windows.
I used about three different USB pens, and tried Rufus (dd and ISO mode), imagewriter and Etcher.
The problem remains the same every time: I am greeted with “Welcome to GRUB!” and from there is doesn’t go any further.
Other Distros work fine, even arch-based distros (I’ve tried antergos, anarchy and Arch). It’s a legacy-boot, so no UEFI.
It doesn’t matter if I wait ten minutes or an hour
I really don’t know how to go on from there … any help is appreciated.
