Hi I've always used ubuntu command line and now installing the os 1804 onto my laptop as I've had issues with windows, after installing it would hit the bios screen and turn itself off. When I plug the USB back in I get the black screen with white text saying along the lines of test ubuntu, install ubuntu, install ubuntu (oem). When I click install again I can rebooted into the installation and I attempt again but I can't seem to get it to install.

I tried checking the partitions but I have no idea what I am doing, so I formatted them to test but still can't install it to my laptops hdd.
