installation of Ubuntu instead of Windows 10 on a laptop.

Asked by Joker on 2019-12-02

I am trying to install Ubuntu(18.04) instead of Windows 10 on my laptop(Asus zenbook 13 ux333fn). The problem is that i am doing it from Usb(the only option) and after i choose to load Ubuntu instead of a normal menu with options like "try Ubuntu", "install Ubuntu" gurb(version 2.02) console appears. How can a get normal menu?

I've found that i need to find certain files, namely vmlinuz and initrd. I tried "ls" command and get this:
(memdisk) (hd0) (hd0,gpt2) (hd0,gpt1) (hd1) (hd1,gpt4) (hd1,gpt3) (hd1,gpt2) (hd1,gpt1).
Then i tried something like "ls (hd0)/" but i get "Filesystem is unknown"; only two options work and in each there is a folder efi with some .efi files in it. However, i haven't find anything about what to do next to install Ubuntu. To create bootable usb i used Rufus.
fasbtboot and secure boot are disabled.

Did you MD5 test the ISO you downloaded?
How did you transfer the data to the USB stick?

Thanks

I've solved the issue(got help from other sources). The problem was in Rufus. When i tried Win32DiskImager it worked well (maybe it is due to the fact that i am using win7). I didn't use MD5.
