  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Install Pop!_OS wont load from USB


New member

Hello All!,

I need some help troubleshooting what is preventing "Install Pop!_OS" from loading up and starting the installer. I'm trying to install Pop!_OS 20.04 LTS from usb stick on Dell XPS 9360. I'm able to start the OS from the USB drive but when I try to open the installer it tries to load for a bit (I see it starting next to activities and pointer is spinning) but then it disappears without the actual installer starting. I updated the BIOS but other than that I can't really think what else I should do to make it work. Any suggestions?

I should also add that I am not trying to set up dual boot and just trying to install Pop_OS as main system.
