Hi, so for the past couple of days ive been trying to install Linux Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

I took all the necessary steps ; creating the iso, disabling secure boot, portioning space on my ssd, etc. 

When i go to boot the flash drive it comes up with a very texted based install page (Image 1),

then i hit install and all hell breaks loose. (Image 2)

 

Any ideas what it could be??

 

Thanks -Jknife

 

Im running windows 10, latest update

Won't hurt to get some Details from Speccy.  Follow this tutorial and post your Speccy Link if possible.  If not then we need to get more details, like Graphics Card and Partition Scheme.

Continue getting the Speccy as pcpunk suggested,but, it you may have a corrupted flash drive, or something didn't install right when creating the boot media. I'd re-download the Ubuntu ISO (windows 10.. you should have 64bit hardware so get the 64bit version) and re-create the USB boot drive. See where that gets you.

Would turning off acpi in the advanced boot options of Ubuntu help if the error happens on a new iso or is there drawbacks to this?

The first thing we should do is Verify the Checksum of the iso downloaded.

 

Here is the  SHA256SUM Checksum for "*ubuntu-16.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso"

1384ac8f2c2a6479ba2a9cbe90a585618834560c477a699a4a7ebe7b5345ddc1 

I use this TOOL in Windows to Verify the iso Checksum.

 

Then Check the Install Media also just to be sure.  

Use THIS TUTORIAL  to verify the Install media after creation.

 
If that doesn't work try a different USB.

 

You may even use something like MiniTool Partition Editor Free Version to Delete Everything on that USB, and start over.  You could do this in Linux but you can't boot linux right now, unless you have another computer with Linux on it, use gparted to wipe the USB.

Lets let OP reply before any more replies at this point. OP has a bunch of stuff to try out!  :)
