I’m wondering what Linux distributions can run on my laptop.
my laptop is a hp 2000 notebook pc
my memory (ram) is 3.8 GiB
my processor is Intel® Pentium(R) CPU 2020M @ 2.40GHz × 2
my graphics card is Intel® Ivybridge Mobile
my os type is 64 bit
my hard dive is 488.0 GB
I need a Linux distribution that looks very much like windows

can anyone help me out?

I agree with @jamescv7 , with the dual core, and 4 gig of ram, you could run just about any distro of the 64 bit variety. What software did you burn the ISO with?

You can install it just like Ubuntu (or any other Linux Distro). In my opinion a bootable USB option would be much better.

  • Create a Bootable Live USB from 32/64 Bit .iso file of Zorin OS.
  • It will enable you to boot to desktop and on desktop you will see link to install Zorin OS (as shown in the Image below).

You probably might have overlooked this installer link created on the desktop.

I hope it helps. :)
