I have an Acer Laptop Aspire E-5 573G It came with pre-installed Windows 10. I tried installing possibly every Linux OS (Ubuntu, Kali, Parrot Sec, Linux Mint) along side Win10 but didn't work. So I got rid of the Windows 10, cleared my whole hard disk and now when I try to install Linux I'm still stuck at the same point.

When I try to run live/install Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Parrot Sec I'm stuck at a black screen with a blinking underscore (_) I googled and tried with nomodest on and with couple more settings but it doesn't work.

But when I try to install Parrot Sec in fail safe mode I'm stuck on the following screen.

Stuck here in Parrot Sec in Fail Safe mode.

I don't understand what the problem actually is. I'm currently installing these OS in Legacy mode because when I try to install them in UEFI it doesn't detect any bootable device.


seems to be a bios issue, the official acer forum solved , give us a look https://community.acer.com/t5/E-and-M-Series-Laptops/Acer-Aspire-e5-573g-You-can-not-install-any-one-Linux/td-p/386009
