I have downloaded the Ubuntu .iso and created a bootable USB drive. I have 3 drives: 1 1TB NVME with Windows 10 on it, 1 TB HDD, and a fresh 500 GB SSD that is GPT. I am trying to install Ubuntu on the fresh 500 GB SSD. Despite two full days of varying installation procedures and parameters, every attempt has been stalled by one error or another. I will try to elucidate the gist of what I have tried, but again, I have easily spent about 20-25 hours trying many different things and various solutions to the errors that have arisen for each step of the installation processes.
Despite following this tutorial: https://tutorials.ubuntu.com/tutorial/tutorial-install-ubuntu-desktop#7 . I have run into a number of errors. First, I try the simple installation and just click away. It appears to install fine. But after restarting my computer without the USB drive inserted, I am taken to the following screen:
I tried all of the solutions I could find:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/88384/how-can-i-repair-grub-how-to-get-ubuntu-back-after-installing-windows (the steps in this solution stopped working at around step 2 due to commands not being found)
I suppose the best answer would be a step-by-step guide to successfully install Ubuntu. All other guides/tutorials always give rise to one of the following errors:
- https://itsfoss.com/fix-minimal-bash-line-editing-supported-grub-error-linux/ (this solution did not work) https://askubuntu.com/questions/918581/cant-boot-any-os-after-installing-windows-gnu-grub-minimal-bash-like-line-edi https://askubuntu.com/questions/88384/how-can-i-repair-grub-how-to-get-ubuntu-back-after-installing-windows
I tried to manually address the GRUB CLI issue with a manual partitioning, but it didn't resolve the error message:
- https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DiskSpace#BIOS-Boot_or_EFI_partition_.28required_on_GPT_disks.29 https://superuser.com/questions/936889/booting-a-usb-from-the-grub-command-prompt/936915
On start-up, I also get a flashing screen, where it alternates between a black screen with text (see below) and just a blank, black screen.
So, yeah. A lot of problems. Any ideas?
