I have an asus N501 (BIOS mode is UEFI) and I had installed ubuntu 14.04 on about 3 years ago. after reinstalling my window I decided to install ubuntu 16.04 instead of repairing the previous version's boot.
Anyway, after using rufus and making a bootable USB and trying to boot into ubuntu the system stopped on ubuntu logo and did not go further, I've checked the USB on both newer and older computers and ubuntu worked with no problem, I even updated my BIOS as it was a 5-year-old version but nothing changed. I decided to check the ubuntu 18.04, ubuntu 14.04, and lubuntu 16 but they have the same problem (14.04 worked once but the result did not repeat) I downloaded and used an older version of rufus and surprisingly I managed to boot into ubuntu 16.04 and installed it but after that time I could not boot into the installed version on the system and I also had the same problem when tried to boot in to from the USB drive! I have tried the process so many times and nothing actually worked!
I also download YUMI as an alternative to rufus (the UEFI version) but the USB was not even recognized in the boot menu) and used two other Softwares that did not work properly.
Does anyone have a suggestion for my problem or can recommend any good alternative for rufus or yumi?
