    New and cant install Ubuntu from USB :(

    Hi

    Very newbie issue I think.
    I've downloaded Ubuntu and created a bootable USB
    However, it won't install. I think it's an issue with my bios settings but I don't know what. Sent boot order to use USB - hdd etc but it doesn't even seem that the USB is recognised in bios

    Mobobis a gigabyte ga ma78gm 1.0 (old I know but had worked like a charm in my htpc)

    Anyone got any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance 👍

    Thanks for the replies.
    I used rufus to create the usb with the latest version of Ubuntu.
    I think the issue is more to do with my computer not recognising the USB in bios

    Would that make sense?
