Trying to install Ubuntu on this PC:
ASUS Z77 Sabertooth Intel Core i7-3770 32GB RAM
Created boot USB on Windows using Rufus 3.3.1400.Tried [GPT/UEFI] and [MBR/BIOS or UEFI] scheme. Please note that Rufus offered to choose between different image writing modes (ISO Image or DD Image), I tried both without any joy.
Booting in UEFI mode, installation gets as far as first menu where I choose from 'run without installing', 'install', etc. After selecting 'install' PC crashes - nothing but black screen. After 'run without installing' sometimes I see message 'AHCI mode unavailable' and crash, most of times PC just crashes.
USB created by https://unetbootin.github.io/ is not recognized as UEFI and attempts to boot ends up with 'No operation system found' message.
Double checked BIOS and can confirm that SATA switched to UEFI mode.
Is my hardware not compatible or I keep doing some mistakes?
Thank you in advance for suggestions
