Installation issues on a hp elitebook 850 generation 2 laptop


Hi everyone,I’ve been having issues with successfully installing netrunner 20.01 because sometimes I either witness the installer crashing or if the installer finishes than it will provide a seemingly generic screen that is actually a false positive confirmation of a successful installation however when I reboot the hp elitebook 850 generation 2 laptop than I’m immediately dropped into a black screen with white type saying that the system is trying to invoke a dhcp connection or I’ll end up being dropped in the grub console…

What should I do to finally make this installation a true success?
My hp elitebook 850 generation 2 laptop has a Intel i5 processor and 8 gigabytes of ram.
Thank you very much everyone in advance.
