So I am having issues already getting Linux mint cinnamon on my Asus but I'm learning how to really navigate the forum to find the resolution. But I am having a good time trying to solve it.Look forward to diving in and ditching windows!!

Hi, and welcome!
A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. - Max Planck

Welcome Iprovidence!
Ceep working on the Asus. Some models are easy and intuitive, others are not. Keep fiddling with the bios to make sure you are in legacy and make sure that you don't try one of the wrong video drivers. Black screens are no fun! :D
