I used Rufus 3.8p to write Ubuntu-18.04 on to a SanDisk 32GB pen drive. I am trying to loading into the Ubuntu live gparted so I can resize my partition.
I get these options when botting into the pen drive.
* Try Ubuntu without installing * Install Ubuntu ...
Regardless of what I choose, I get these warnings.
ACPI Bios Error (bug) unable to enumerate USB device ...
Then the Ubuntu splash screen appears with a loading indicator. Then I am back on the command line with an error.
(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system
My system is Dell XPS 15 9570. Different settings in my BIOS.
Boot List Option is set to
UEFI rather than
Legacy External Devices. I have tried changing this. But I get more errors.
Secure Boot is Off.
I have tried changing USB ports. I read somewhere about using USB 2.0 instead of USB 3.0. But, there are no USB 2.0 ports, and I don't think there is an option to change it in the BIOS.
All I want to do is get to gparted so I can resize my drive. I have tried to install a bootable version of gparted into a USB drive. It boots but then runs into a similar error.
Tried disabling ACHI. Didn't fix the original issue. But now when I set it back to AHCI, the grub menu has completely dissappeared. System directly boots into Windows. I didn't mention before, but I have Win 10/Ubuntu 18.04 dual boot. This is going to be a long day.
