I have a PC that does not load the gui on start up, but instead goes to a login prompt.I have put the SSD in various PC's without any issues.  I suspect that the clue is in the first line of the pic.

This has to do with microcode for the processor. Let me guess it is an AMD?

Hmm that usually means another instance of xorg is already running, so type
sudo top
and check if there is anything X related already running.
Edit:
BTW, even if you manage to make it work, i would not use that PC for machine control, it seems like a hardware issue so sooner or later it will mess up.

sudo dmesg | grep xconf
sudo dmesg | grep video
sudo dmesg | grep vga
sudo dmesg | grep amd
sudo dmesg | grep radeon
sudo dmesg | grep nvidia

check each of them for clues.
Friendly advice:
From experience, if Linux does not start on a PC, do a clear cmos and try again, if it does not work = throw in a bin and get another one.
Linux works with all kinds of hardware and might have issues with some, but find me an operating system that works with RISC processors ???

Tom . Thanks for the feedback, I hear you. I do have plenty of PC's

It's just like I don't like being beaten.

This pc will load linuxcnc through a terminal using $ linuxcnc machine-name.ini



I will check out the above.
