You can try this - https://darryldias.me/2020/linux-wifi-drivers-for-2012-macbook-pro-offline-method/ Don't select to install third party software during the install.

If you are still stuck at boot, press F4 or the Home key on your keyboard to see where it is stopped.

okay ill try this, and update you again, thank you

So are you adding any drivers at all? What is being added between the first successful boot and when the black screen appears?

i think i was trying to install the wifi driver and installing the other updates. i left it during lunch time, afterwards booting it up i'm just seeing black screen with loading animation icon on the middle (bottom of the screen)

Would you still like help? Or have you settled on the new operating system?

i've tried Linux lite for a short while... (to be exact last night) and after booting up this afternoon (June 29) I'm stuck with a blank screen...
i've tried the ai service of this website, it says that try reinstalling the os... or with some bios setting thing... i forgot the full details.
what should i do then...

I've recently revived our old macbook pro 2012, upgrade ram to 8gb and installed a 512gb ssd,
after installing linux lite on my machine, and booting it up I'm stuck on a blank screen with a loading icon at the bottom.

I've tried a hard reset but the issue still is still there... so after many tries I've switch to another lightweight Linux distro (linux mint mate)
