I created a usb of cinnamon 20.1 using etcher and installed it to my laptop no problem. I tried to use the same usb to install to my desktop and it doesn’t install, it just sits on a black screen with a flashing white underscore. I’ve seen comments about Nidia problems and putting commands in the boot menu but it doesn’t get as far as the boot menu. I tried to redo the usb using rufus and same problem. Any suggestions?

What happens when you try to boot from Live usb?
And do you have secure boot enabled. If so is there a way to turn it off in Bios.
Gives us a little more info on the machine, Make model video card etc.

Try to make your Live USB on your laptop with 20.1 on it.
