Installation never finishes

Trying to install Linux 6.1, and when I get to the part that it recognizes the mouse I hit enter and all you see is the cursor blinking. Have waited ten minutes but nothing happens so I have to reboot and start the process over again.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You say at the prompt enter text and hit enter. Upon boot up they give you two options, normal and expert there is no option for graphical or text, please clarify since I have tried over six times and each time I have to reboot and start from the beginning.
