So I got ubuntu 18.04 LTS on my HP Pavillion (Model 13-128nr) and I just did a fresh install (Using Rufus) to my Usb drive and it won't boot it just goes to BusyBox
Please start by checking that the download was good. You can use
md5sum according to the following link,
I looked at your video clip, but it was somewhat difficult to see the output. I think you tried to create a persistent live drive with Rufus, and there was an error output similar to the following:
(initramfs) mount: mounting /cow on /root failed: invalid argument overlay mount failed
If this happened you are adviced to run Rufus such that it does not try to create a persistent live drive. You can use 'dd mode' in Rufus, and it will create a live-only drive. 'dd mode' is cloning, a very reliable way to create a USB boot drive.
Or you can use another tool, for example
in Windows: Win32 Disk Imager
- the Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator
- Disks alias
- mkusb can create both a live-only drive and a persistent live drive with Ubuntu 18.04.x LTS.
Rufus should be able to create a persistent live drive with Ubuntu 19.10, which will be released next month. See also this link.
