Whenever try to install linux it shows "base address is zero assuming no ipmi interface" and do nothing but blinking a dash(-)! My laptop is currently running on Windows 10. I tried Zorin, Mint, Ubuntu, all are doing same. What's the problem and solution?
 


G'day curious, Welcome to Linux.org

More detail please
specs of your laptop
anything else you have tried?

which os are you trying with now?

When you are installing....you have the os burned to a usb stick...correct?

....and then you boot the laptop to that usb stick..?...right?

does it show a linux screen with the usb stick plugged in?
 
Welcome to the forums
first, you must disable the windows quick-start [fast boot] in the UEFI/BIOS
some problems may be equipment specific, full make and model number of your kit please,
A how do I Guide, follow link in my signature

Mine is a very old lowend laptop.
Dell Inspiron 3521, Core i3 3rd Gen, 8GB RAM.
I'm trying installing Zorin right now. Yes, I've the os burned to Pen drive. When I press F12 after powering on, it shows 3 option for installing Zorin. I choose 1st one, and then the problem happens. I tried it multiple time. But If i try to install windows 10, it install successfully and run laptop for couple of minutes without any problem. And suddenly A black screen appears and stay like this. Very horrible.
 
ok so my Inspiron is about 2 years older than yours with the pentium twin core, and I regularly chop and change Linux builds for testing,
so possible problems
corrupt download of the ISO [make sure you check the SHA sum
if your using USB
bad burn to the pen-drive [I recommend you use Balena etcher to burn the ISO]
on an old machine, possible a worn USB port try a different one, although the single port near the optical drive is usually the best one to use
If your using optical drive
use a new unused DVD-r [work better on old kit]
clean the lenses on the optical drive
make sure you choose to burn as bootable disc from your software
 
This used to be a kernel issue.

Devs say it's safe to ignore it, but in your case, you can't even boot into the system. Checking checksum is the first step.

Additionally,
 
Can you please easily elaborate the solution? I'm not that much expert and there's no one use linux around me.
 
Ensure that Secure Boot, Fast Boot and CSM are disabled in BIOS. Then as @Brickwizard Has suggested use Etcher to burn the usb stick. You can get Etcher from Here.
