Hello everyone,
(I am kind of new to Ubuntu/Linux, so sorry if this problem is already solved or is very easy to fix) Today I decided to try and install Ubuntu onto a second hard drive so I could dual boot with windows. Firstly, i used a USB to try and install Ubuntu, however whenever I try and load what ever is on the USB I get a 'Invalid Format' error/message that flashes on my screen. So then I tried to use a disk instead but to no avail. I might want to add, that it does give me the options to 'Try Ubuntu', 'Install Ubuntu' and some others. However no matter what I pick it always gives me the same error...
Here is a list of my hardware in my computer:
CPU: Intel Core i7-4790K
GPU: Asus GeForce GTX 760
(i don't think that anything else could case this so i missed everything else)
My monitor, which in my opinion is what is casing this, is a LG M2232D-PZ. My monitor is connected using a normal HDMI cable from my GPUs HDMI port...
I will try and take some pictures of the problem. but i hope this is enough information to give you an idea of what's happening.
