Crash after installing OS

Every time I install a distro a variation of this happens. It is always after running the partitioner part of the install and then mid OS installation. The graphics card is just the intel integrated graphics from a duo core 2,13 ghz. Running it live from a USB works without any problems. I cant lock the amount of cores it uses in the bios because it is too simple

Welcome to Linux.org

It is always after running the partitioner part of the install and then mid OS installation.
How do you know it is after running the partitioner part of the install?.....are you arranging your own partitions?

Did you verify the distro download?

Some more detail please.

No, I plug in the USB, turn on the PC, it then asks me if I want to install and I select graphical install, then I get those questions about language, password, etc. At last it asks for partition, I select the whole disk there because it is completely empty it then the partitioning loading bar starts and completes. Then the installing OS bar appears and is somewhat filled and then my screen turns to what I linked before.

I tried 2 different HDDs one was 80gb and one was 1tb. What exactly do you mean with manual partitioning because I just wiped it from the manual menu and created a new one and I am assuming you mean something more advanced?

I just did the text install version and it ran into the same issue, just a different color pattern on crash screen. I also ran a memory test and it just black screened and went back to bootscreen. Hardware detection was not a problem.

Just did that, it took some time, then started printing tons of EXT4 errors that were going too fast to read. Then it showed the normal start up print stuff like with a RPI, but it was all blurred in the pixel sense. It then just went into a black screen

which particular distro are you trying to install ?

Have you tried the USB on another pc?...will it boot to just the live os (without installing) on another pc?...without the dramas you are experiencing on your own pc?

You insert the USB stick.....you then boot the pc to that USB......are you able to run the 'live' version of the os before you try to install ?

Yeah checked the USB it works fine and tried another USB as well, I tried kubuntu, ubuntu, mint and linuxcnc which i think is just mint. The live OS works on my main pc, but also on the one that is not working. It's when I try to install it all goes wrong.

Has the hard drive in the one that is not working been formatted in any particular way?

Has it given/shown any signs of breaking down in the past?

I formatted it on my kubuntu laptop to NTFS, but I deleted that partition and made a new one with the manual partitioner that comes with mint. I have never had a problem with the harddrive, I have an unused SSD laying around which I could try if you think that might help.

Can you liveboot from your usb device, then open a terminal and share the output of the following.
Code:
lscpu
lspci -nn | grep -i vga

Try booting into your installation media with these kernel parameters, first the first one and if that doesn't work try the second one.
Code:
i915.enable_psr=0
i915.enable_dc=0
If that does work run the following command from the live installation media.
Code:
lspci -v
Then in the output search for the VGA section and then share what it says under.
Code:
Kernel driver
Kernel modules
