Why linux no boot?

I don't think it's an issue with just KDE, I've tried Mint, KDE Neon, Kubuntu, Ubuntu, and ElementaryOS. Those are really the only Linux Distro's I know of and they all didn't want to boot. But I did find this article while waiting for Pop to install. https://askubuntu.com/questions/127305/how-to-install-ubuntu-on-a-computer-with-a-nvidia-geforce-gtx-550-ti I'm going to see if this works before I commit and say that I found an answer.

So I've tried again to try and re-install Linux and get Windows and Linux to live in harmony. At least I'm trying, but Linux just doesn't want to boot to the installer. If I make a bootable Windows installer the computer is able to boot to that just fine, but when it's Linux, well. The screen prints things out normally at first but then quickly snowballs in an instant. The screen starts to glitch out and words get so scrambled that it's unreadable and I've done everything from taking the drive that Window's is installed on out, to turning off safe boot. Any advice/help on this. I'm not that savvy with Linux yet.

Brah, do you even Java?

Are you trying to boot as UEFI mode or legacy mode?

Does it give any kind of error?

I'm sure it does, but the screen corruption happens so fast that I cannot remember quickly. After I'm done moving things around in Windows I'll test and record to get the error messages.

Try legacy.

Wouldn't that mess up Windows?

Here's an image of one time where it got farther, but just stopped this was done by telling the bios to boot it up in legacy mode:

So from what I can tell it is the graphics drivers, I am guessing you have a Nvidia graphics card since the nouveau is having issues.  Try using the Nvidia option, the Nvidia driver enabled by default for that iso, for this operating system,  based off of Ubuntu Gnome just to see if that is the issue https://system76.com/pop

I'll try, and also, NVidia Game Experience updates the GPU's BIOS every month or so. My rig has the Intel Integrated Graphics in it, should I turn that on and plug my monitor into the motherboard directly and see if it can't boot that way? Or is there a way to get Kubuntu with the latest closed source driver?

You can, but then if you switch between Linux and Windows you would have to change where the display is plugged in, also it may still give errors, one thing that can always be done is install other desktop environments after the os is installed, I have Gnome, Mate Plasma, LXDE all installed on my laptop, but I used the Gnome version of Ubuntu to install.

So there is no way to load Kubuntu with NVidia's proprietary driver upon booting up the installer?

I have never tried,  I personally don't care for kde, the main reason why I have it installed is for KDE connect,  sorry I can't help with that maybe someone else can

Well, I'm still waiting for that one ISO to download. My internet is slow af. I've decided to try the legacy with the Integrated Graphics enabled, but KDE thought there were 2 monitors for some reason.

It was because of the Open Sourced NVidia Driver. The ISO you linked me booted up just fine. I might go and email Canonical asking to add an option to download an ISO that has the NVidia Closed Source driver. And if I install this Linux Distro, will I be able to turn around and install the KDE environment?

I don't think they will add that to the official downloads, before Pop!_OS I would manually compile the Nvidia drivers.  The reason it has the drivers is that it makes their systems easier to ship, example of one of their computers (Oryx Pro).  I was looking at some stuff about KDE and Nvidia there seems to be some performance and other issues with it.

Good luck, I have gotten lazy with installs, I usually reinstall every few months so if it reduces the downtime and effort I take it.  Unity I have never had issues with, but I usually compile the drivers manually since the update installer doesn't always seem to work
