Tried to clean install Linux Mint 19, then reverted to LM 18.3 and then back again to LM19 on a Macbook 3.1 which previously had LM 18.3, but now I ran into major problems.
The identical errors in the photos show up after Grub booting, either from the USB live stick, or after normal installation and reboot. It takes 5 minutes to get to the Grub screen, then 5 minutes to reach the login screen, and then another 5 minutes to reach the desktop. Once it reaches the desktop, everything works like a charm.
I verified the media with the Grub menu option and everything was OK.
Also noticed that the intel-microcode was included in the post-installation updates.
After searching the web, the errors seem to point to a video problem.
