I have win10 installed on my computer and I would like to install linux on my other SSD. When I try to install xubuntu it gets stuck on "starting journal service". I have also tried to install different distro but it didn't work either. The installer works fine when I boot it with my laptop. I have also reinstalled windows and formatted both of my SSDs.
Specs:
ASUS B450 prime plus
amd ryzen 5 3600
geforce rtx 2070 super
samsung 850 and 860 evo SSDs

It gives the following error:

A Start job is running for Journal Service

[***] [FAILED] Failed to start Journal Service.

(2min 56s / 2min 56s)

See 'systemctl status systemd-journald. service for details.
(DEPEND) Dependency failed for Flush Journal to Persistent Storage.

https://wiki.debian.org/SSDOptimization I think this might be a Linux SSD glitch I know xubuntu isn't technically Debian but might give a clue.have you tried Linux Mint
I I tried to boot the installer it with all my drives unplugged but that didn't work either. I was able to install Linux Mint with its compatibility mode but I cant boot it because it gets stuck on the same thing again.

I checked the integrity and authenticity they were both fine.

That's what the installer is supposed to do. There may still be some Linux distros that run as apps in Windows, but most need to be installed from a BOOTED USB drive or BOOTED CD/DVD. You can't install Linux by running the installer within Windows.
