Yes I have text. At boot up I have:

Arcolinux x86_64 UEFI CD
UEFI Shell x86_64 v1
UEFI Shell x86_64 v2
EFI Default Loader
macOS

I choose "Arcolinux x86_64 UEFI CD", after that I get the black screen and no text.

have you tried installing an older version of ArcoLinux

If that is working we can compare


The best application to burn the iso to usb is etcher if you are not on ArcoLinux.

I had another thought

what if...

you create the iso today - you need to have an arcolinux or archlinux to be able to do it (other pc?)

I am now reinstalling with that iso on this pc
