I was trying to install Ubuntu 19.04 with a Live USB drive and ran into some issues where I booted the USB drive and after choosing 'Start Ubuntu withouth installing' in grub it froze at the screen where the ubuntu logo with the white/orange dots shows up. I messed with some grub options (namely 'nomodeset' and 'acpi=off') and tried other images/burn methods/programs and still got the same issue. Now I'm at the point I think I messed too much with the USB drive because it doesn't show up as sdb/sdc/etc. anymore. I can't see it with gparted or
... sda 8:0 0 232,9G 0 disk ├─sda1 8:1 0 190M 0 part /boot/efi ├─sda2 8:2 0 1,9G 0 part /boot ├─sda3 8:3 0 9,2G 0 part [SWAP] ├─sda4 8:4 0 18,6G 0 part / └─sda5 8:5 0 203,1G 0 part /home
when I connect the device and run
dmesg though I get:
