Can't Install Linux Mint on My HP Laptop

HP Envy 15 Model: 15-q667nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have tried to install Linux Mint 18.1 on my HP Laptop with the same result. The files will download but not the Terminal or the Cinnamon desktop. How do I get this thing to work?

 

I have also tried Linux Mint 17.3, Ubuntu 16.04, Mate and xfce

I get the same result. The files download bu there is no Terminal and no desktop.

 

What can I do to make this program run?

Thanks for the help. I have an older computer, a Gateway, and I installed it on that one with no trouble. It took about 5 seconds. Thanks again.
