I have a brand new machine and am trying to install Kubuntu 16.04, the latest stable release. On an old machine I have downloaded the iso file from the
kubuntu website and created a bootable USB using UNetBootin.
After selecting to boot from the USB in the UEFI DualBIOS,
UNetBootin asks me for the action I want to take, i.e. "Start Kubuntu", "Boot from first hard disk", "OEM install (for manufacturers)", etc.
When selecting Start Kubuntu or OEM install, the Kubuntu logo is displayed, followed by a login attempt. After some seconds 3 windows pop up, reporting that Plasma has closed unexpectedly with Details:
plasmashell PID: 21128 Signal: Illegal instruction (4)
When I proceed to close all three windows, nothing happens except for a mouse finger in the centre of the screen.
- Where am I going wrong?
- Is this a problem with the bootable USB I created or am I simply choosing the wrong method when trying to install?
Edit: Previous to UNetBootin I have tried using Rufus, which gave me the same problem.
Edit 2: I have now also selected Check Boot Device in the BIOS which returned no errors (If that means anything...)
