Pressing F6 on this screen did not give me any menu.


However pressing F6 while i got the blue bootanimation screen did work for me.

I selected nomodeset as you suggested and then Install Zorin and it started the installation on a different resolution

And after selecting an username and password the installation started without a problem.

When it was done it rebooted on a 640 x 480 resolution so i logged out to go back to the login screen.

I pressed ctrl+alt+F2 to enter tty2

typed username and password

and then each code one at a time to install nvidia drivers

Code: Select all
sudo stop lightdm


Code: Select all
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-settings


There i got an error related to wine. It seems that wine can't be installed with the nvidia drivers so I typed

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove --purge wine-*


then i was able to run

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-settings


without a problem. Next i typed

Code: Select all
sudo reboot


PC rebooted and I know have everything working.
Thanks for the help!
