Hello i have a HP 17-e118dx Laptop currently running windows 10 (Since debian wont work) i can get through the install fine and most of the time it will run. I believe it is something to do with the GPU i have which is a AMD Radeon HD 7640G Discrete-Class graphics and up to 2158MB total graphics memory. whenever i boot the fresh install of debian i get a blank screen as my screen looks powered off but i can see that booting is completing because my wifi light turns on.

i have tried useing fglrx drivers but it doesn't seem to work for me.

Yeah debian and GPU's can be a pot luck.

A better distro may be one of the *buntu's for you

Well you could achieve the same thing no matter the distro, just install server tools on the side.

both debian and ubuntu share a lot in common as ubuntu does have a debian base still.

I'm confused.... learn on your server? If you have a server at home running Debian you can just as easily learn on that....

Or as madman said, just install a buntu distro, its based off Debian anyway, and once you learn one Linux it's easy enough to learn others.
