I'm pretty new to Linux/Ubuntu in general. I wanted my old PC to run it, because I fell in love with Ubuntu, but I can't seem to install it ..
Okay, so I've got two devices. A USB flash, 8 gigs, and a hard drive, about 160 gigs. I flashed 19.04 to both, and first inserted the hard drive only. At the gnu install screen I chose install. I went through the steps, but in the step where you choose wether you wipe it or dual boot it, I get the partitioning menu, with no disks. Okay, so I disconnected the drive and booted the USB stick. I did everything the same, but I was able to install it, no partitioning menu was needed! The USB stick worked, but was painfully slow.
Also, I tried connecting both. When I boot the USB stick, it doesn't see my hard drive and thus doesn't install there.
Please help. I'm giving up now.
Tl;Dr: Ubuntu can install to USB stick but not to hard drive. Boot from USB stick doesn't detect hard drive and doesn't install there.
