Im new to linux. I have an old pc that used to run windows 7 ultimate. one day, while booting it froze at the loading logo. Tried many methods but didnt solve the boot problem. So i thought this would be a nice time to try out linux. I created a linux lite 5.2 64bit booable drive. I open boot menu and chose usd drive and a menu opened where i can choose to live boot, live boot safe mode, install, mem test and stuffs like that. when i live boot i got black screen with cursor. same happened when i chose to directly install it. so i chose safe mode and it booted but i cant connect to internet, the icons were large and resolution was reduced. somehow managed to install linuxlite 5.2 by formating the harddrive( it was given as an option in installation process). when i removed the usb and booted from hard dive i got the black screen with cursor blinking. SO i googled i came across a most common and frequent solution. that is to press “e” and type “nomodest” and erase ” quick splash” to see whats going on under the hood i guess. not sure what it is. when i did that, the boot process halted with this line ” read cache enabled, write cache enabled, doesn’t support dpo or fua”. i tried the nomodeset on live boot and it stopped booting at the same line. i tried different distros (ubuntu 20.04,10.04, lubuntu 16,18,20.04, linuxmint, linux lite 4.2, peppermint, lxle, fedora). I can’t even live boot in any other distros ( remember i was able to boot linux lite live in usb only in safe mode).
intel pentium dual core e5700 3ghz,
500gb hdd seagate
in short its a 11 year old potato pc.
whatever i do, i end with this one line and i cant find any solution.
read cache enabled, write cache enabled, doesnt support DPO or FUA.
grub menu i guess not sure
the cmd line i got when i preesed “e”
the error i got
