    Re: Dual boot ubuntu crashes

    Ok, i will try safe graphics. Anyway, I will leave you the link to the tutorial I watched: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kLf8lTiXsAg, I DON'T KNOW IF THIS PROCESS IS THE CORRECT ONE. As I said before, I'm trying to install it on my ssd and hdd. Thanks for pointing out that I need to use Safe Graphics.

    Re: Dual boot ubuntu crashes

    Hello thanks, I tried with safe graphics but still I can't. Now, I don't know if this is relevant but in the last phase of the installation there was a part where it showed that it was scanning the CD-ROM. I don't know if this means that my bootable usb was flashed in the wrong way. Another thing is that now it crashed when it was scanning the hardware, almost ready to be completely installed.

    Installer still refers to DVD/CD even when from flash drive.
    ISO is intended for either flash drive or DVD and does not check.
    I install from another internal drive and still get at end cannot unmount DVD.

    We see various issues, and many times, they try new ISO, a different port, different flash drive or different installer. We never know what was exact issue, but then it works.
    So you may need to experiment.

    Does installer pass verification when you first boot.
    We used to always use md5sum to verify ISO download.

    md5sum (older versions) or sha256sum (new versions)

    You should really verify your ISO image. Do you know how to do this?

    By the way, can you provide the link from where you downloaded the ISO?

    You mentioned that you have not seen Try Ubuntu in your live session and this leads me to think that your image may be imperfect.

    Lastly, as requested twice by oldfred, boot into a live Ubuntu session, open a terminal and post the output of your partitions with
    Code:
    sudo parted -l
    Please wrap the terminal output in code tags because it makes it easier to read.

    Re: Dual boot ubuntu crashes

    Hello, yeah. I got my ISO image from the official page: https://ubuntu.com/download/desktop
    Also, I don't know how to open the terminal in an Ubuntu session. As I said I can't run try ubuntu and I've seen that in the installation some people have the option to open some apps, but in my case it only appears the installation menu. Is there a way to open the terminal without entering in that mode?

    Type ctrl-alt-t at the desktop to start a terminal.

    When you boot into a live session, the top entry is Ubuntu.
    Select the top entry and the live session will load.
    The next screen will be a Desktop with Try Ubuntu and Install Ubuntu
    Select Try Ubuntu

    Any joy?

    Another thing, I don't know if this is important but my HDD (storage unit) apparently has a Windows Boot Manager and a partition called System Reserved. I don't know why. I installed windows on my SSD and always boot it from it.
