Having troubles installing trisquel

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to install trisquel but I think my graphics card is incompatible.
I downloaded the trisquel 7 iso and used rufus to make the boot usb. When I get into grub the second option is install Trisquel. When I click this the screen turns black and nothing happens. The screen is on, just everything is black until I restart.

Now I tried the nomodest and ctrl x but then it says the live cd can't be found and I can't install. Anyone know what to do? Trisquel is based on ubuntu btw.

Error I keep getting after nomodeset and trying to install:

Did you checksum the iso? As far as the black screen it is probably because the gpu driver is in the kernel and not the x-server. You need to boot in regular bios boot up with a work around. . At least this is my understanding. I am no expert. What is the kernel version? You might need another kernel. Just a guess by me but something to try.
