I'm trying to install Ubuntu on a small PC I built,
ECS H87H3-TI thin-mini ITX motherboard i3 4330 CPU 8gb of RAM 120gb SSD.
Whenever I try to install Ubuntu, whether through flash storage or DVD, I get the same result: it boots to the regular options to either install, run off USB, check for disk errors, etc., I select 'install', the desktop shows up, but it's completely empty...
I can move the mouse and I have the regular options in the top right corner on the grey bar, but I have nothing else on the screen apart from the wallpaper and if I move the mouse past the left or bottom edge of the screen, it continues on as if the desktop extends past what I can actually see. I tried to adjust the screen settings but there's nothing that I could find to let me adjust to have everything appear on one screen. I also tried multiple different monitors and I get the same results.
I searched on the net for an answer but I found nothing related to my issue. There are a lot of posts of people getting just black screens, but I have the desktop, but no installation window.
