[customers directory output of their home dir redacted by pimp for privacy reasons, this was not a pimp rig]
Hello friend I did remove that information to protect your privacy. I did not see the pimp zip or img file in that folder.
You would have to find where you downloaded the zip file and go from there.
There was not a Downloads/ dir which is the usual spot. Check your own documentation for how to download and use files on your OS.

Hey guys, i get a black screen when attempting to boot into Ubuntu.. what should i do?
Is this the first time your booting with this image (i.e. new install), if so check uefi is enabled, onboard gpu disabled, and set to pcie from onboard graphics card (settings can be different depending on your motherboard manufacturer and model?), set to Gen 1 or 2, and make sure to hdmi is hooked up to the first pcie slot gpu (pcie slot closest to the cpu).
Also, have you made all the recommended changes to your motherboard bios settings, see article: https://forum.getpimp.org/topic/9/setting-up-motherboards-for-mining

For Mac OS users, this post maybe helpful re writing image via terminal using dd, and verifying image written correctly. If you prefer a gui instead then this post lists how to write image using Disk Utility gui: https://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/how-to-create-disk-image-on-mac-os-x-with-dd-command/
