Mabey something along the lines of using VNC on the phone to link to the Ubuntu box, but it would just be VNC attached to your head. not a poor mans-VR.

comment 12TB storage, can someone help me? :)
Look very closely at a zfs solution with a smallish (128-256GiB) ssd for a scratch drive. Just be warned..ZFS loves ram but can be very fast.

Since you don't know what you installed and were thus unable to list anything, I told you how to get back to a known state.

comment There are no OS options in Dell Recovery.
have you tried to switch terminals with ctl-alt-f2 ? if you can, you might be able to use parted to det the bootable blag. Or if worst comes to worst, make a ubuntu server usb, boot it and change the flag there, then try to install ubuntu.

Are you using a 64bit Ubuntu on a 3 bit machine? If you have UEFI, did you change it in bios to turn off secure boot? How did you boot the time you managed to use gparted?
