For Atom, there may be a problem with the installation process due to a graphics issue, which is often seen on other Linux systems. When you try various installation methods, if you encounter problems see a hang of the installation due to a graphics issue, it appears to be a serious problem that can be restricted.

Even if it is atom, it is stable to use it if the installation is normal.

If you encounter problems during installation.

recommend......Install the operating system with minimal installation. Later, installing the GUI in terminal state can have more stable results.

I can answer additional questions if the questioner updates the installation status.
