    Unable to Install Ubuntu

    I am currently running on windows 10 , and I want my computer to be dual boot with Ubuntu . So yesterday I downloaded Ubuntu latest version and booted into my usb drive when I tried to install it through boot menu , for few seconds there was a logo of Ubuntu and then a some codes keep blinking on the screen and nothing is happening Please help me I am too worried , I downloaded Ubuntu two times I thought there is some error while downloading .
    Here are thinga what I did :
    Here are things which I did (I was following instructions from a you tube video)
    1 . I downloaded Ubuntu 9.04 ISO file.
    2 . I downloaded ether ( a software which helps to boot ISO into usb drive ) .
    3 . I formatted my usb drive , and flashed it with Ubuntu ISO file .
    6 . I created 100 GB unallocated for Ubuntu installation .
    7 . I restarted the computer into boot menu .
    8 . Selected External drive .
    9 . After few seconds of loading Ubuntu icon was there for few seconds .
    10 . Then a error came 'Can not find Trocbone , database may be currupt ’ , then a screen came where Ubuntu icon was in background and some codes were blinking there ( I’ll add that photo below).
    11. I thought it is a part of installtion process , I waited for 30 minutes , nothing happened just codes blinking .
    13 . I restarted my computer to windows by pressing power key for 10 seconds .
    14 . I thought my ISO file was currupted . so I downloaded again Unbuntu18.04 from Ubuntu.com , and repeated the same process and the same thing happened , same error came .
    15 . I tried to change the booting software I used universal usb , rufus instead of etcher .
    16 . I thought there is some error in my pendrive , so I changed my usb drive .
    17 . Noting worked

    You seemed to have have everything right in toubleshooting. You can give us details for your computer, make model, cpu and ram. The line #1, am hoping that is typo and you meant 19.04. Can you also check trocbone or translate. Also make sure windows fast boot is turned off.

    When you download the Ubuntu iso, you should do an md5 or other checksum on the iso to verify that it is good. See the link below.

    One of the images you posted shows an ntfs filesystem on hd0,2). You aren't trying to install Ubuntu on ntfs?

    The link below is the Ubuntu documentation on dual booting with windows 10, hopefully something on that page will help.

    Re: Unable to Install Ubuntu

    Tocblock helps a lot, it might be as simple as disabling secure boot from a google search for tocblock. Suggest you do a google search also and see if anything is more helpful.
