Someone mailed me some suggestions, but probably did it directly and the 
email does not show in the thread.

-The installer can take a long time to show up, so I left the pc on 
overnight, but nothing happens. When I woke up I got the same black screen.
- Keyboard layout is US International
- My Chipset is Intel i7-1165G7, which comes with Intel Iris Xe Graphics. I 
have no other GPU on my pc.
- For the boot messages yes, I can take pictures. The output is very arid 
tho. I managed to get more stuff printed on screen by following this 
...In which case output goes on forever until it says that boot failed.

I'll try to take some pictures of this later on today!
