I'm trying to install Linux on a separate partition on my hard drive. I did it once on a previous machine, and tried to do it on my new one, but have run into an issue.
I've been trying to use a live install from a USB drive, and all is well until I get to the point I try to boot into the live demo. It goes to the Ubuntu load screen, works for a few moments, then hangs up without finishing, requiring a hard reset.
Then, when I try to reformat the flash drive, it says that it's max capacity is only 30-ish kb. I'm using WinDisk Imager to put the image on the drive, and ubuntu-16.04.3-desktop-amd64 image from the ubuntu website. What could I be doing wrong?
