Did you validate the sha256 checksum before writing the iso to disk?

Hi nlife,

I also have a problem with my laptop. The laptop runs centos 6 fine and Windows 10 fine, but with Centos 7 the install works but unable to login. It also runs Centos 7 fine in a virtual machine. I could suggest trying Centos 7 or even Centos 6. Centos 6 goes end of life in Nov however. There is not much you can do except file a defect.
