I hardly understand what you mean about GDM, but don't worry I got the general picture...
GDM, the initial login splash screen, but yes- the picture being that Zorin tweaked some features to be exclusive to Zorin.

1.) Sometimes, it tries to connect over and over through-out the installation process.
2.) When it connects, it looks for updates or additional packages to install with the initial installation. This can be helpful for many reasons, one being that the proper space is allocated for blocks of packages on the drive (No defragging). This isn't too important, though because that can be handled after the install. What can happen, though, is files get corrupted or jumbled up since it basically becomes two installations of the same package at once. It is supposed to default to newer, but I have found that doesn't always happen that way.
Since it is making changes during the installation, it's probably not too different from if you are working on a project and then someone changes the plan on you a few times. It increases the probability that something will get mixed up or go wrong.
It's better to finish what you start, then make adjustments, updates or corrections after.

And I also read about this from another user in another forum. So I will put W10 somewhere else... I did had W7 without trouble, but W10 is another thing.
Off topic / related: What is bother my , is the fact that Redoback up tool won't work either after putting it in the same usb flash drive with multisystem.
You are definitely not alone!
It's also tricky with USB install without disk, just one O.S. on a clean system sometimes. Without MS involved.
The ToughBook I just got, I was very lucky on. It has No Disk Reader, only USB. I had no choice but to install with USB. But 12.4 lite installed perfectly and smoothly. I may not be as lucky next time. But MXLinux gave me trouble on it with USB install before I got it installed (With errors).
It's not just Zorin, Bionic Beaver and Xenial have had issues with it from what I have read. And - I wonder if the redobackup having similar trouble is a clue--- or just coincidence...
