if no load- At the menu screen, press 'e' to edit and then use the arrows keys to navigate to the line that begins linux boot etc and go to the end of that line (make sure you leave a space after ro) and type acpi=off. Now press F10. If X won't start or XBMC starts with a black screen add 'vga=791' or 'vga=792'. to make acpi/vga commands permanent: (in X) Grub Customizer, General Settings, Kernel settings. Add commands there, save and reboot. if video jerky or XBMC starts with a black screen: run Nvidia_install script
A/V Software? I don't need A/V software. I've run Linux since '98 w/o A/V software and have never had a virus. I never even had a firewall until '01 when I began to get routers with firewalls pre installed. With Linux if a vulnerability is detected a fix is quickly found and then upon your next update the vulnerability is patched. If you must worry about viruses on a Linux system only worry about them in the sense that you can infect a windows user. I recommend Linux Mint or, if you need a lighter weight operating system that fits on a cd, MX14 or AntiX.
